Suggestion, don't use a space heater, use a radiant heater.
Space heaters heat the air and blow it on you. The require a lot
of insulation because the air of course gets cold again.
Radiant heaters radiate heat, similar to the way the sun feels
warm on your skin. You can aim a radiant heater right at your work
area and anything that faces it will be warm.
You can get non-electric radiant heaters, but I am not sure what
fuel they use, and how safe that would be.
Also, a few halogen work lights provide a lot of light and
a fair bit of heat as well. Having them in the immediate
area of your hands really helps.
I'm in Canada, I know the drill.
