thanks, I'll keep that in mind... fortunately, though, the situation is not quite as black-and-white as your paranoid adage suggests.

we don't sleep in the shed, there is no significant exchange of air from the shed into the airstream, the shed is not airtight, we don't leave the furnace on over night, we leave a window open a crack, and we have a carbon monoxide detector in the living quarters that is rated to function down to -40F.

see, you try to understand the potential problem, which is death by inhalation of air with a high concentration of CO, and then you use your innate human rationality to make sure that it's not a possibility. or... you can make all your decisions based on irrational fear and call it a day.

I don't think there's a need for the attitude. Sometimes, pointing out the obvious is necessary. Take the warning in the spirit that it was offered. Good luck to you and keep us up to date on your wintering adventure.

yeah, sorry for the annoyed tone... we've just had lots of people (elsewhere, not on the forums) giving us condescending warnings about the downsides of our various decisions lately.

you are right though, my mind transformed a well-intentioned concern into "you're a careless idiot who is probably going to suffocate in the night" and I took offense. sorry.

it really wouldn't be too hard to redirect the exhaust outside of the shed, we just haven't had reason to believe that it's necessary. anybody else, feel free to chime in if you think it's a super bad idea. I promise not to jump down your throat.

I think it's kind of funny. An unintended "benefit". Keeps the firewood warm and the critters out, eh?
