Fred I'm good with agreeing to disagree. If you were closer I'd buy you a beer or six and we'd smoke a peace pipe with my favorite blend. Everyone has their own opinions based on their own experiences. I respect that. Hopefully I'll get to actually buy those beers some day.

I'll tell ya',if your Homeowner's Insurance Co. sent out a field risk surveyor to your residence,they'd castrate you for a temp set-up. A lot of the Company's have been increasing their field survey presence to assess actual property and casualty risk situations. A total pain-in-the-can reality. I see a ton of Amish heating a barn workspace just the way it's been mentioned here. They generally are self-insured,so they don't get visitors dropping by to assess potential risk-causing situations. We've seemed to aquire having many guns to our heads these days. Good Luck,and please don't screw yourself,all sincerity meant. Also,It would be a rare treat to pour those beers(or coffee's) for FF and CK !

Sometimes you gotta do things a little different until the right way can be made to happen. I used a 16 foot piece of 8" drain pipe and set it on a couple cinder blocks. It was held off the wall with a couple pieces of angle iron. I came out the side with a single piece of stove pipe and ran it thru a piece of sheet metal. It never got the slightest bit hot because there was only a very small area touching. Any heat from the smoke pipe was quickly transferred into the tin that covered the window. It worked well actually. I used that for 4 years until I was financially able to put up a block chimney. I'm not saying that it was the right way, and I'm not saying that it is legal. It was a solution for me until I did it right. The drainage pipe now spans my friends driveway to his camp.

I have to correct your title:
Inexpensive = temporary.
