WFO's in Cold Climates
 
SCChris made a good point in an earlier post about moisture forming on cold steel studs for an enclosure when the heat from the oven hits them during the cold winter months (well for some of us :) ). Is this an issue that anyone has run into that has freezing winter months?

Here in New England, our cold weather is so cold (how cold is it?) It is so cold the moisture is squeezed out of the air by the mean cold winter. It is relatively dry and I haven't had any problems with moisture in the winter. Now, summertime is a different story, humidity is rampant! Whatever moisture there is on something (metal studs, cement board) will be quickly dried by the heat. Moisture absorbed by something over a period of time, then heated quickly and expanding too quickly damages the absorbing material. (firebricks as an example)
Short answer - no problem here! ;)
Hope that helps...

if well insulated the location where the studs are should be the same as the outside temps.

My oven roof looses snow about the same rate as my house.
