When I built my new garage I installed a Reznor forced-air gas unit heater, suspended from the ceiling in the corner, ducted/vented directly outdoors through the wall. To avoid pilot flame problems, I specified the burner with electronic ignition so there is no ignition source unless the unit is actually cycling. It's controlled with a normal wall thermostat, but the main power switch is right over my workbench so I can deactivate it if I'm working with solvents. Works like gangbusters, no fumes, no CO; garage is super-insulated with finished interior walls, so it doesn't cycle very often anyway.
