Renovation Realities

A Very Large Walk-In Cooler


December, 2012


It’s been an interesting process watching our new walk-in cooler being built.  Piece by piece, floors, walls and ceiling were assembled; it took a couple of semis to deliver all the parts, over one week to put it together and about a month to get it fully functional.
The walk-in is 24 feet wide by 90 feet long.  (It’s like a small apartment in a very large house!)  Then you have to add power and compressors (you can see the dual 

compressor system in the photo here)  It is a technical operation and one that is physically very demanding.  It makes one appreciate those who put these in. I know I do.
