New to clay so baby question

So I don't have to worry about clay freezing and killing whatever bacteria keeps it plastic? It becomes viable again?

My husband and I are insulating the cottage for me, and I really want a propane stove that looks like a little fireplace, because it can keep the studio a constant temp, but they are around $1200, so I don't think that is on the list this year. I can put a small wood burning stove in there for about $250, but it will get cold at night. Should I keep boxed, new clay in the house? How about the clay I have to wedge? Can that freeze without hurting it? 

 

Thanks! I live about 2 hours south of Canada in NY, the coldest we get is about 35 below F, but that is just a few days a year. It is usually a balmy -10 for a lot of the winter. :)
