Using a Pi is overkill for a project like this IMHO.
On a side note I'm also interested in a project like this (also on the flip side a wireless refridgerator monitor as I just had to deal with a defrost failure there). I recently picked up a Nerdkit and am working my way through IC's and imbedded electronics (former failed EE student)
I think you can use Arudino's for the controllers and a PI tied to a small LCD for overview.
