I wouldn't do it. I had to do some major repairs on my boat a half dozen years ago. I (fiber) glassed some components inside our attached garage.

Even though I opened up the garage doors and had fans, the catalyzing fiberglass odors, went up and through the house, completely making the house unlivable for many hours and everyone very upset with me.

The garage is sealed with double drywall and a weatherstripped door, so I thought it was okay. I would not ever do anything like that again.

The strange thing, is that I can spray bomb car parts, use my sand blasting cabinet etc, with very little, if any oder transfer (at least that the occupants smell), it's the chemicals and the stuff I don't smell that worries me!
