Heating and ventilating a very small space
My wife and I will soon be building a 250 square-foot in-law unit in our backyard in the Bay Area in California. The unit will have a bathroom and a great room with kitchenette and living space. It'll be built on a slab with advanced framing and sealed as well as we can. It'll have a gable roof and a cathedral ceiling.
We were originally planning to heat the space using a radiant floor system and ventilate with a standard bathroom exhaust and range hood, but after reading articles on this website, I'm not sure that'd be the most effective solution.
For such a small space, how do you think we should heat and ventilate the home?

Does anyone know if there is a manufacturer that makes an energy efficient, dual HVAC/ ventilation system that would satisfy both of my needs and eliminate the need for 2 duct systems?
