The breezeway is basically a finished room with windows, doors, electricity and tongue and groove paneling. However, no insulation or heat source was installed. It is on a cement slab, 7' x 11', and has 3 good-sized windows on the west-facing side and 2 of the same windows and a door on the east-facing side. We'd like to turn it into a fully finished mudroom where we can keep our shoes and outdoor gear and not have them be freezing in the winter when we put them on (we live in MI). We are planning on installing sheet rock and a full exterior door (just have a storm door right now).

Before investing into a heating source, you need to focus on the insulation. To do this properly, consider stripping off the bead board to expose the studs, and install either...
