I’m in a similar situation, but they’re wood walls, zero insulation, and a few little holes thru which I see daylight.

I tried kerosene and electric heaters for my 20×21 space. So far, the absolute fix for this came as a surprise:

My dad bought me one of those stand up propane heaters you see outside of nightclubs. Where the burner is 7’ in the air. Couple it with a fan and your problem is solved. You can buy those heaters for $100 now, and one full grill sized propane tank lasts me about 20+ hours on half heat.

I’m literally sweating in one hour. Try it!
