Default Cold Weather layups

Warm shop by any method except burning foam and fiberglass
build tent to work in if room is large and cold, cover tent of 2x4 with one or two separated layers of 4 mil plastic

Store foam in warm environment, as it heats from cold to warm it can out gas and cause bubbles under layup

use heating blanket on large pieces, heating pad on smaller ones during cure

Small electric heaters can be used in the fuse if they are safe and modern, with fuselodge covered in blanket to hold in heat during cure.

keep epoxy in hot box with thermostat and 2 bulbs, just in case one bulb burns out

use a hair drier during layup
