Propane or small hot water heater recommendations, please.

Just finishing a 30 x 50 workshop. There will be a very basic shower and lavatory, and a small cooking area. Total hot water use for the shower, lavatory, and kitchen sink would be no more than 3 times a week, and for maybe 3 persons. I'm looking at small propane hot water heaters, but have no idea about what rate of output I'd need, or really anything about their reliability. Just didn't think it wise to put in an electric lowboy as the two hot water points are 30' apart and with such infrequent use. Thoughts, please?

This would seem to be one of the times I might recommend one of the 'tankless' types of water heaters.

I've moved your post to the "Water Heaters" forum...

Thank you, Trooper, for moving my request to the proper area. Your response is what I thought to be the obvious and the issue of my request. I'll stand by to see if anyone else can reply with experience on those tankless, propane-fired hot water heaters.
