    If I ever get a trolley, this is how I want to set up. Interested to see how it works out. What the paraffin for, a heater?

    Yes. Green house heaters. Figured the smaller the space the better. If it does freezer with this set up. I'm thinking it will be to Cold to clean anyway. Fingers crossed.

    I reckon you will be very pleasently surprised with that setup. I've see them on tv cook a whole chicken with nothing but a lightbulb in a small oven made of celotex/kingspan. Make sure you also insulate the small joints and things as they act as thermal bridges. For any holes you can squirt expanding foam in too as its pretty much the same stuff.

    Good job matey.

    Good job, I had one of those sheds(storing toys), mega winds pulled the lid of it, had to put bolts in on hinges, if you can design something that holds the lid down at edges and not just rely on the plastic padlock part, mines ripped out and broke the plastic, think I put a rope across from one side to the other to secure it attached to wooden base that I made. ( dont mean to be all gloom and doom, just a headsup):)

    Cheers, I would rather be told and do something about it than find the lid down the road one morning.
