i must suggest an infared propane heater or what some call a plauqe heater. if your thinking of going propane this is a good option. i researched various heating ideas for my 20x24 high ceiling studio. i agree woodstoves can take time, i personally love them, have one in my house, but for my studio, no i just want to be able to turn the heater on and keep it warm while not in there, without worry (i have a child also!). the infared heaters come in a variety of sizes and whisltes. sounds like you would need the larger version with five plauqes and if you go this route definitly get one with a thermostat. i didnt and feel i waste alot of propane, but this winter i only spent $300 on propane, i am in the south but live at 3500 feet elevation so its more like living in the norht, not canada per sa, but not the hot south. I bought my heater at lowes for under $200 so the whole setup with tank, lines, and fill up was under $500 to start and they do heat well, hope this helps

What sort of ventilation do you have to have for that kind of heater?
In cold and wet northern California.
