Garbhaveśman (गर्भवेश्मन्) refers to an “inside room”, which is mentioned in verse 3.16 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] In (a man) living in an inside [viz., garbhaveśman] or basement room heated by charcoal heat there never arises a disease caused by cold and roughness (of wind). [...]”.

Note: Garbha-bhū-veśman, which must be interpreted to mean “garbhaveśmani tathāvidhe bhūveśmani vā”—“in an inside room or, likewise, in a basement room” (Indu’s explanation), has been represented by sa-khaṅ khaṅ-pa ñis-rim byas. While sa-khaṅ is a metaphrase of bhūveśman (“basement”, Hindi taikhānā), khaṅ-pa ñis-rim byas is incongruous with garbhaveśman (“inside room”); it denotes, to use the Tibetan wording, “the room built in the second place”, that is, the ground floor.
