Install an air conditioner or chiller and thermostat for your new wine cellar according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Measure all surfaces in your wardrobe, including walls, ceilings and floors, with a tape measure. Cut pieces from 1 1/2 inch thick rigid foam insulation plates to fit each surface using a matt knife. Use a control detector to find the rules in the walls. Use a drill to screw the insulation to the walls of the wardrobe on the controls.
Stretch 9-mil plastic foil close to hard foam insulation. Tape and nail it into place. Cut away unnecessarily with a utility knife. This creates a vapor barrier for the room and helps control the humidity. Apply plaster over the plastic. Measure the wine closet again with a tape measure. Cut gypsum boards to size to fit walls and ceilings. Screw plaster into place. Tape corners and seams with plaster tape. Cover the holes and the band with a thin layer of gypsum cement compound. Sand the surface. Paint the walls.
