    Well, my plan to buy more styro incubators got vetoed....

    Is there a cabinet incubator on the market that can handle the temp swings in an unheated/uncooled shed? I have a 8x12 shed, but it doesnt have a window, so there isnt a way to put a window unit in. About the best i could do is heat it in winter with kerosene or plug-in heaters. Even still, the swings throughout the year would be, at best, 40-100F.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Could you cut a hole in the wall for a stand alone air conditioner?

    Id have to talk to the owner, its a rental, but id guess probably not.

    i dont think that you could buy one but you could build one that could work with in that temperature range. I would start with a large wine cooler then build on from there
