I have lived in in Georgia, France and Vermont. I have lived in and repaired tens of houses along the way. I have learned most of what I know from my mom, a true DIY-er. My experience runs from foundation work to faux painting to cabinet construction.

It would severely handicap the usefulness if it was outside. There is fire brick on the floor, the problem is that the brick heats up rapidly.

@shimon-rura I edited the answer to deal with the weight of the downspout. A drain attachment will only work if you are connecting to downspout to a water collection barrel or something similarly solid, in which case the elbow near the ground won't actually carry any weight. Rivet or vinyl is best.
