Did you ever just try and place mother on top of hot water tank. The tank stays warm and you get some heat from the vent off the top. I did this in Calgary with 2quart jars and had PLENTY.

I put mine in a cupboard above the fridge and it seems to work great. Even in winter. Althought I did a lot more kefir before the KT, but it seems to be working the same.

If your temp is lower like you've stated, it will just take a little longer to brew. I wrap my brewing container in a towel and keep it under my sink. Works well
