Would it be safe to sleep in a garden shed/treehouse at night?

In my backyard I'm thinking about building buying a garden shed mini cabin to sleep in on some summer nights. The shed would be in the backyard. One concern I have is someone breaking in late at night while inside. The shed I'm looking at buying has wood floors, small windows and a wood panel door. The door is a solid woodfinish on the inside and outside. The door has a handle instead of a doornob. This means the only way to lock the door is with a padlock either on the outside or on the indside.

The shed/mini cabin has woodfinish walls inside. I would be concerned about someone breaking one of the windows at night to break in.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

This would just be a place to sleep maybe at the most once a week.

To make myself feel more comfortable I would want to paint the walls and paint the inside of the door colors that I enjoy.

I would put an airmatress on the floor and sleep in a sleeping bag.

Depends where you live.

Say, if one of my friends did that where she lived, she'd get mugged or shot. And where I live, if I did that, I'd get mobbed with racoons and eaten alive by misquitos.
Reply:I think that it depends on where you live. Like, here in Idaho, I would feel pretty safe doing that. But, when I was living in Ghetto, California (Oceanside)...I definitely would not recommend sleeping outside. Pretty scary. But, if you have a padlock on the inside, I think that would be okay. It's not like they can cut the padlock if it's in the inside, so that's good.
