A little Building, but all very simple and very very cheap:
Ultra bastard son of fermentation: buy the largest rubbermade container you can find at walmart. buy a sheet of 1/2" insulation board (4x8 ft. @ lowes like $8). Buy one roll of insulation "bubble wrap" ($12 @ lowes.)
line the bottom and inside of the container with the insulation board, then cover the board with the bubble wrap for extra protection.
next, wrap the outside and lid with bubble wrap. then boom! your done. from here you can use a temperature controller and whatever heat source you desire.
Note:if you are fermenting with carboys you may have to build a collar with the insulation board to raise the lid a few inches.
