Topic tags/keywords: solar kiln project

I am kicking around converting a storage shed (10 X 12) where I currently store some rough cut oak planks into a solar kiln. The front doors face south. I’d be very interested to hear the collective wisdom on whether I can convert this into an effective solar kiln by latching the front doors open, covering the doorway with a clear layer of plastic, and installing a small fan inside near the top. Thanks for your input.
