Not actually sure myself, but I see you're in Colorado.

I figure I'm taking a chance (because I'm still demo'ing) and have to be in bus by September 1st... 20 is pretty extreme lows for my area, I can adapt and have a plan B for the colder than normal temps (staying in the T-Shirt shop I work at) Also, for immediate use I'll insulate and close off the bedroom and hibernate in there mostly, for short term.

I was in a 10x20 insulated (ceiling and walls only) storage building last winter... I survived most times with 1 Quartz heater

On the coldest nights, I kicked on my little milk house heater

One of the things that helped the most was a 10" oscillating fan to circulate the warm air from the ceiling.

I'm probably not much help, just letting you know what worked for me.
I once complained I had no shoes....
Until I met a man with no feet

Thank you my friend! I wont Always be plugged into electric and these wonderful little heaters might zap my solar and battery power don't-cha think? :/ I decided Ill have to surrender to using propane when I'm not plugged in somewhere so ill get a propane heater. I just see many buses where the ceiling panels were apparently left intact. I'm hoping I can do the same.....
