DIY baseboard hot water heat design help for a single room

We have a sunroom added to our house, right now it is a 3 season room because the builders didn't really include a means to heat it in the winter.
Just using some rough heat load calculators fromt he internet, I need around 3500 btu/hr.
Floor radiant heat is not an option. I am thinking of designing a mini-baseboard hot water sytem for this room. A mini-boiler, an accumulator, 4 gpm pump, several runs of baseboard heaters, a wall thermostat to cut the pump on and off.
I have looked at some of the manuf. sites like SlantFin, I think these should put off plenty of heat.
I'm not sure about a mini-boiler? Electrical requirement? I would like to run the boiler and pump off an existing 120v, 15 amp circuit. Is that possible.
If anyone knows a manufacturer that makes a DIY solution for a one-room area, that would be helpful.
