Refrigerator Medicine Cabinet
“I don’t have a heated shed close to my cattle treating facility to keep medicine from freezing during winter, so I kept it in my shop,” says Fluit. “I had to walk to the shop every time I needed to treat a sick calf, and then return the medicine right away when I was done because medicine doesn’t take long to freeze in below-zero temperatures. I considered building an insulated storage box, but then I realized our old refrigerator cabinet is so well insulated it would do the job.”
Fluit drilled a hole in back of the refrigerator for a cord to go through, and installed a small space heater with a built-in thermostat to control the temperature inside. He also placed a thermometer on the refrigerator’s bottom shelf to show the actual temperature.
“Now I have a heated medicine cabinet along with lots of shelves and storage. Works great,” says Fluit.
