Default [Q] Building Rom on External Hard Drive

I don't have much space on my computer anymore, but I do have a 1 TB external hard drive. WOuld it be possible for me to download all the PAC sources to it and build roms on it while its hooked up to my computer? I assume that builds would take a lot longer, but I just want to know if its possible
Devices:
Optimus L9 (P769)
Rom: CarbonRom

Nexus 7 (2013)
Rom: Caron Rom

Galaxy Gear
Rom: Tizen

Where you locate your source files really doesn't matter as long as you have all the necessary prerequisites to build, e.g. gcc, java, SDK, etc. You may have to play with your environment variables to get the system to locate stuff properly, though.
