    Like George, I have an outbuilding that was going unused. It's now set up as half storage (our house has very little) and half my play room. I have an 8 foot table for reloading and a 12 foot table for gunsmithing and other projects. Very happy with that set up, though I do still need to work on climate control.

    A bedroom in the basement. That gives me a temp/humidity controlled environment. Good for the supplies and ammo , as well a nice comfortable place to work.

    If I had a basement that is where I would reload. IMO that is the best place. The controlled temp and a concrete wall for your bench to rest against. A good cup of coffee and there you have it.

    My bench is set up in a little nook in the bedroom. No way I'm reloading in the garage in the summer time.

    Garage is heated and cooled, so works good,
    I just lock the doors and every now and then yell..... I'M bissey go away.
    But that is hard to do. My girls love helping me with it.
    They each pick a stage, and away we go.

    Have a bench setup in a corner of the Garage, a dual purpose bench, as I also 'reload' for my bows on that corner, part reloading/flecthing area. I built an L shaped bench, reloading presses on the right hand end and bow vise on the left end. So many intrests, and too little room. :)

    I have a setup in a partial basement under the main part of the house. It's really a mechanical room, but it serves as a nice place for the man cave. The temperature is fairly constant throughout the year even though there is no insulation in the one wall that is exposed to the exterior.

    Unusual situation. I live at work (in a work-owned home). The campgrounds here are 70 acres, 18 buildings, three wells, five septic systems, and a lot to keep up with.

    The "extra" building was an old block-built shower house that was put up in the 1940s (as best I can tell) and has been used for junk storage since 1991. I cleared out the junk and made a small workshop for myself.

    Whenever I change jobs, I'll certainly have to figure out something new. But for now, I'm in a great situation! :D

    Now the kids are grown/away at school; empty bedrooms downstairs; where I have my bench. Interior Alaska is a dry cool climate, stays in low 60's, humidity 40% in basement; I just keep my primers in rubber sealed boat boxes with desicant blocks. Powder just on upper section of bench. Some friends in these parts store powder in outside sheds, but I figure the extreme range of temps probably doesn't do the powder good.

    I have a small tv on the bench but find myself doing my brass prep upstairs, talk to the wife & dog; too quiet for me in basement no kids around.

    Garage, hot or cold, doesn't matter to me. But, I do keep primers and powder stored indoors for climate control.
