What do you do in the wintertime?
I would love to put an observatory in and am considering a shed from Home Depot measure 8x12. I was thinking about creating a small warm room for computers and me.

It is 10'X10' with a motorized roll-off roof. It's a special design for Dobs; the walls are 3' high.
Here is the link for the building of it.
