Just a suggestion - the easiest and most reliable would probably be to
simply use Appveyor for this. They offer a hosted and fully managed CI
service very similar to Travis CI - only difference being it runs
tests on Windows boxes. And just like Travis CI, it's free!

The advantage of a hosted CI service is that no one except Appveyor
need to worry about keeping the build bot highly available.

Only downside is their machines in the free tier can be a bit slow.
But that's a problem that can be iterated on as the need arises.
