I would appreciate any thoughts or insights before I jump in! Thanks

Now here is a question that I can sink my teeth into. I am from Winnipeg. My kiln is inside my heated studio, and is vented to the outside. Most potters in our area, [Canada] would have their kilns in a garage or some kind of covered shed. Give Frank Tucker a call at Tucker Ceramics in Oakville, Ont. He can probably put you in line with a used kiln. I know Nelly is also on the blog. She is from Toronto.

Seems like Cone Art and Euchlid kilns are the ones sold at the two large ceramics stores near Toronto. I'll probably get a used kiln though as I see there are quite a few on Craigslist and Kijiji. Seems like there are a lot of used Duncan kilns out there.
Tom: Brrrr. I spent a winter in Winnipeg working on a consulting project in 1994. We don't get quite as cold as you guys do! Good to meet a fellow Canadian.
Big Electric Cat: You had me worried about posts 2 and 3. LOL

Curious. I have fired my kilns- outside, under cover- for 20 Pennsylvania winters, with nary a thought about 'board temperature'.
