OK heres my question for all you construction Geniuses.
My new house has a 1 car unattached garage, that has electricity. Now my objective with the garage is to have heat in it. I'm going to fully insulate it. But I just don't know how I would go about heating it. Would I use a space heater or some other kind of portable heater? Any help would be appreciated

Several considerations need to be addressed here.

If your planning on being in the garage several hours per day, every day, you might consider either a natural gas unit<if nat gas is available> or a propane unit <if that's available.>

Either unit will do. However, consider into your plans the need to run a gas line to the garage.

Installing a gas unit, you will need to hire a licensed plummer to install the under ground gas line and also a heating agent to install the heating unit.

Both will have to follow the city code requirements. If costs are not a factor, this would be a good choice.

If your not planning on being in there daily, for long hours, don't want to spend the added bucks for installing a gas fired unit, a portable electric heater will do just fine, since the garage will be fully insulated.

Good Luck
