Have you considered how many of those fans will you need to ventilate the space when things are warm?
I recently replaced a bathroom ceiling fan and they suggested that suitability was based on the volume of the room and how often that volume needed to be changed every hour (12 times I think) - one ceiling fan was JUST enough to meet the need of a 12' x 8' bathroom with a 9' ceiling.
I also ventilate the underfloor space of my two back rooms (30' x 15' x 2') by using 4 x 4" 12 volt fans on a timer - they are just noisy enough to be heard when they turn on in the morning. They are mounted into a double brick wall below a carpetted 5 ply floor, and the master bed sits over to top of the whole shooting match, and still I hear them with 59 y.o. ears.
The bathroom ceiling fan is quieter than the 12v fans. Note I'm speaking of 4" computer style axial fans, not the little 2" ones in the back of a PC.
And I'm not sure, but in the southern hemisphere, should the fans be on the ceiling or on the floor, technically?
This is helping a great deal I'm sure.
OK, continue on with the discussion.

NEXT SUMMER ......... There'll either be an AC unit in one of the windows or I'll be TOAST. Maybe a solar powered swamp cooler but I can't practice in a sweat lodge. There was a suggestion that I could get some fast shade on it by locating a few tallish and fast growing trees next to the new shed. Planted in large oak barrels would make them ...... about 4 feet taller. Good idea, that.
I went out looking for a small heater for the joint ......and scored with a tiny 700 watt oil filled heater. It's just like the bigger ones, only it's a foot tall. It's completely silent.
Just about done here .... I expect to finish it BEFORE my felts and rebuild kit arrives from The Bandroom (1 month and 8 days and counting ....).
And about the little plastic computer fans ........ Radio Shack. Perfect size and fit but sort of expensive. I think it's a $3 fan, but by the time it's packaged up and the Radio Shack sticker is slapped on there .... It's $20.

Timed fans exhausting beneath a basement less house /shed serve multi-functions, 1. evacuate toxic Radon gas if present, 2. evacuate moisture as may induce mold and rot, and 3. evacuate heat. 2 and 3 apply to attics as well.

Oxygen tent on the roof, piped into the shed via flex hose. (just kidding)
No, we've given up the idea of jams with multiple musicians and instruments and it's going to be mostly office/trumpet practice/recording booth.
And Ed, don't worry. It's not an oil heater .... but rather it's filled with oll and electric. You just turn it on and adjust the thermostat. There aren't any emissions from one of these sealed units (that I'm aware of).
