TxBeeFarmer, try using a nitrogen shipping container.  Port of Houston
probably has many for sale.  I bought one several years back and love it.
It's 20 feet by 7 feet by 7 feet high.  Insulation is four inches thick and
it is possible to run lines in for the evaporation unit of a compressor very
easily.  They are made for all weather and will last forever.  Hope this

Thank you all for the very informative discussions.  I've decided to invest 
in a walk-in cooler and some sort of hydrocooling system - Hopefully, I can 
use the walk-in's cooling system for the hydrocooling too.

Now for a little more help please.  Where can I purchase a good walkin 
that'll stand up to the constant loading and unloading of produce AND being 
outside - hot sun, high winds, sand storms, hale, etc...?  Or, do I need to 
build a building or shed for the walk-in?
