    I use a propane infrared heater that’s designed to mount to a wall normally. I made a stand for mine on wheels so I can move my heater to any area I want! It’s got 5 panels that heat up and it puts out a lot of heat! Their designed with sensors in cause carbon monoxide gets too high or your room looses too much oxygen it will auto shut off! There 99% efficient so don’t need any venting either! Been using mine for over 20 years no problems at all. It’s made by Empire heaters! Their not cheap, but worth every penny!

    Insulate the area with rugs and plastic wrap on the window. I think a portable heater is the best bet.

      By the way, propane tank sits right behind the 3/4” plywood the heater is mounted on. So it’s all contained in a movable unit on wheels. If you like to see more detailed pictures how it’s built just let me know? Be glad to give you specific sizes (cut list) for all the pieces to make one yourself if you decide to buy a heater like mine?
