I want to build an 12X20' walk-in freezer. I'm going to use treated 2X4
in walls, with vapor barrier and blue insulation to get an R-19 value
in the walls. First question, in what order does the blue insulation
applied, when is blue insulation applied.
Same with ceiling, I'm using 2X6"'s with foam board of R-30. Is the
vapor barrier placed in the inside of the cooler to cover the board, or
the outside against the wall. Is a dead air space advisable? This is
for a liquor store, and will be used to keep beer cold. Temperature
will not run below 28 degrees.

No good, the wood, no matter how well it's insulated will start taking
on moisture, creating possible mold hazards. Go out and get real snap
together walk in boxes and be done with it.
I've worked on a few wooden boxes over the years but they were made
out of better materials than you are planning on using and still had
to have the insulation cleaned out and replaced occasionally.
Ya, wooden boxes pretty much suck with all of the moisture problems,
expansion and contraction, and they end up smelling like old, and I
mean really old house.
