He is hoping to keep the oven in the basement around where the dryer is (for the 220v receptacle)

How are you guys set up at home to do this?

Thanks!

i don't think i would recommend in the basement. i have an electric ketchen oven in my garage to do powdercoating with. i mounted the oven just below one of the sliders in the big picture window on my back wall and a box fan in front of the slider. when baking i just open the slider and turn on the fan and all the fumes just go out the window.

you will have powder that won't stick to the part (s) , "overspray" if you will, it's nothing a few sheets of newspaper spread down won't handle. just wad em up and throw em away when your done...
