looking for info for cooling a wine closet

Hey guys – i'm looking for other folks who have built their own wine closets (see my post history) and had to invent ways to cool it down. The "professional" chillers for cellars i find (CellarPro, Breezaire, WhisperKOOL) are way too expensive for what i need. I have a space <100 cubic feet with 160 bottles of wine in it, and i need to make up about 13 degrees from house ambient (68F). I do not have AC (we live in the PNW! come on!).

Do most of you guys use roll-around AC units? if so which has been reliable for you? Features that help? which ones suck? Is your closet on all interior walls? if so where do you pull intake and exhaust into for the vented type units? Has anyone found evaporator styles that don't suck?

Looking for folks who already have experience in doing their own cellars and can provide some insight.
