Drying in workshop with propane heater

So my drying room has been converted into a bedroom for my twins.
I have a 300 sqft workshop in the back of my pole barn. Unfortunatley it is not insulated and has no heat and its freezing where I live.
I'm debating providing heat with a propane heater and using a dehu to take out the humidity produced from burning propane.
My concern is the fumes and if they will mess up the weed. I know propane burns pretty clean but when I run this in a room I can definitley smell some gassy fumes.
Anyone have any experience with this?

Twins get your bed, weed dries in drying room, and you sleep in the work shop. Hope this helps.

man I would grab a handful of 1x3 furring strips, 1/2" thick 4'x8' sheets of foam, and make a simple box. The most efficient way would be to use a corner. Attach your foam to the frame on the 2 sides you built, and to the walls in the corner you used. Put one of those safety heaters with the big fins in there. Probably $100 if you bought everything new. Foam is easy to create intake and exhaust openings. Could be done in an hour, use screws so you can easily take it apart :blsmoke:

Yeah they are already in my bed, I just finished painting the room and everything, they havent quite moved in there yet. I will most likely dry in there I'd just rather not. It does seem like the easiest option though

But are you going to sleep in the work shop?

Nothing extreme here. But I hang in bare frame garage in temps from 25-50F. Just keep the air moving and the extra days are worth it. I prefer a 2 week dry here. And long cure. Over dried a few times. But never failed.
