I have considered putting a return duct between the furnace room and the garage for just heating in cold weather. I would put a sealed door on this opening so I could close it for painting.

I hope this might give someone an idea how to heat their garage/shop/spray booth cheaply. (well as cheap as energy costs these days )
this sounds like a nice set up
