Build in Basement?

I am planning to build a kayak this winter. The most convenient place to do this would be my basement, which is heated. I have already checked the window, which is 18" high by 28" wide, so I am confident about getting the boat out in the spring. My question is: will the epoxy fumes create problems, whether physical or psychological, with the rest of my family? Some people describe it as a mild vinegar odor, others tell me it will ruin the house forever. Is the truth out there? Thanks.
