Generally speaking …

I don’t know the answer to the questions; however, I do have a little common sense about having an outdoor electric kiln in a small shed. These are my anecdotal thoughts.

The perfect outdoor shed for a kiln is one that is fireproof and vented properly.

An outdoor shed is the perfect spot for a kiln. Although an outdoor shed may not be air-tight, a vent is still an important device to have.

The fumes would be terrible without venting. The vent also extracts excess heat, which could destroy a digital electric kiln’s controller.

Good venting means the shed door would not need to be open if it gets too hot in there. This is a benefit in the middle of winter when snow may blow into the shed.

The floor and surrounding walls around the kiln should be fireproof. There should be little around the kiln. A wooden floor is probably not appropriate.
