As I live in a dry desert environment, static buildup from walking on the house carpets before entering the room is a problem. The reloading room is also carpeted. So years ago I bought a conductive rubberized large floor mat that I have the bench for the reloading press siting on. The mat is big enough that I stand or sit on a stool on it during reloading sessions. The mat is connected directly to ground which kills the static build up.
While I could reload in my garage it is much more comfortable and convenient to be able to do it inside the house, year round.
That is a nice set up. My set up is 100% in the garage and I will admit that sometimes I just don't want to be out there. Even though I have "Some" temp control it is rarely ideal.
