i would never put the kilns inside that shed - it would seriously limit how
much time you can spend working in there. "Got some time to work today but
i can't because the kiln is firing"...that would get old really fast. it
will be worth the time and money to build a little extension outside of it
for the kilns.

i had an electric kiln in my garage studio for a short while before i build
my kiln shed so i know how bad it is.
