It may be a bit unconventional but it will get hot, and you'll soon know how hot.

Yep. It hit 128F by 11 am one morning. That was with the outside layer incomplete; it had and has about 6 - 8 inches open to the outside all along the bottom of each side.

I still haven't loaded it with lumber, though. Stuff keeps eating up time.
