I saw your question yesterday which prompted me to finally get outside & take some photos.
I'm in the southwest in an area that's said to be very similar to sulcata natural habitat but yes in late Dec.- Feb. it can get very very cold here. We had an ice storm just a couple of weeks ago. It actually snowed one day but it melted later that same day.
Husband built a home for ours with cinder block & concrete, so the floor is very cold in winter. I line it with newspaper with old towels on top. In summer the concrete floor is cool so she likes that, I leave her to sit on that with out any cover on it.
She has a Kane heat pad on one side of her home, in one corner is a 250watt ceramic heat emitter.. then the other side with the paper & towels has no heat.
She uses all three options depending on the temperature.
Her home is 3 feet tall, I forget how many feet wide it is 4-5 I think.
Here's the pics I took yesterday
