My Upper Peninsula “Workshop in the Woods” is 110 yards from the house, thus “trenching” is not practical. The building is 24’x28’ with a loft, and is insulated. I selected a Resnor 35,000 BTU propane heater with the separated combustion feature, thus no exposed flame. It’s vented to the outside, where I also placed a 250 gallon propane tank. A picture of the mounted heater is on my blog.

This is a pretty efficient set-up, and as I am gone in the dead of the winter, I basically only need heat in April, a little of May, and then again in October and November. I don’t really use a heck of a lot of fuel. I like to keep everything in the shop at a constant temperature so I leave the thermostat at 69 degrees.
