Re the heat. With the ceiling open, it will be tough as all of it will go up 
there and it will be nice and toasty in the attic...You might want to 
reconsider the ceiling, or partition part of it and put a ceiling in that. 
Working in a cold garage is only slightly better than outside.  And once the 
floor gets cold, it is COLD.

Consider putting plastic sheeting beneath the concrete floor plus insulation 
under the concrete-before they pour it.

You can think about putting piping in the floor and running hot water thru 
it. A warm floor will help a lot.

Don't know what to tell you without the ceiling. It is a big area.

Good l;uck.
