I just did a set up in our pantry with regular shop lights as sunlight. Let me see if I can find photos... Ah, here you go. But our water heater's right there, and it's in our insulated basement, so it regularly stays about 65-70*.
My mistakes? Not starting the seeds early enough, not transplanting them into larger/separated pots as soon, etc. Mostly timing.
My trick with tomato and pepper seedlings though included using my heating pad and digital turkey thermometer to keep the soil temp of 'em (at least the peppers) at 85-90*.
Beans.... can you just direct seed them? That's what I do. Of course I grew a ton of beans to can this year, and need to grow even more this next year to can even more. I think I used almost half a pound of bean seeds, ended up with 300+ sprouts, and this jungle. There's no earthly way I could start that many seedlings in my house, anywhere.
