if you dont take them into the house, the glue will actually crystalize and turn a powdery white and will fail. I speak from experience. Either find a way to heat that area, or you will need to take the pieces in. It would be even better if you can take the pieces in, let them acclimate, take them back out glue them up and take them back inside.

The reason why i would take them in first is that the wood will be just as cold and will affect the glue curing just as much as the ambient temperature
