In my opinion the use of propane heaters in an enclosed area is potentially VERY dangerous.  Most common, small propane heaters (like the Coleman and Century models) are not rated for indoor use, and they can kill you.  Other propane heaters (like the kinds used in homes, houseboats, motorhomes) have catalytic converters (I believe) and are rated for indoor use.

By far the most common kind of small propane heaters that are rated for indoor use are the Mr. Heater Portable Buddy and Big Buddy models.  They give off small amounts of CO and have low-oxygen sensors, and with a bit of ventilation they're pretty darn safe.  I've used my Portable Buddy indoors many times.  You can connect them to the small 1# propane canisters (from Target or WalMart or tons of other places), or get an adaptor hose and feed them from a 20# "barbeque-type" of propane tank.
