Moved Reloading Room
When my powder supply topped 40 lb I decided to move out of the house. I got an 8'x16' utility building and insulated and wired it then finished the inside. I now have benches down one long wall and across one end with shelving for supplies.
I have it airconditioned and heated with a small frig for cold beer,( not while reloading).
I'm soon going to install a fold down table for my gunsmithing area, and more shelving under the bench.
What kind of settups do you guys have?

Similar situation. 12 X 12 shed, loading bench down one side and shelves along other two. AC, no heat (it is TEXAS, by God), no fridge (gotta have some contact with the family). Not big enough for everything I do, I cast bullets in front of the garage, better ventillation. Gunsmithing, that's what kitchen tables were made for.

Living in the midwest, I am a basement reloader. I only have around 10 pounds of powder, and it is stored in a wood cabinet, with primers being stored in a seperate cabinet. I cast bullets in the garage with a ventilation fan. My basement is unfinished, so soon, I will enclose my area with some walls and I fear my wife and kids will not see me much.:D Is there any better way to spend a rainy or snowy day than fiddling at the reloading bench?

Well you know I'm and old fart and I have spent some of my years acumulating stuff. I have a 2400 sq ft fab and machanic shop which gets more of my time than my reloading but I would rather it were the other way around.
The wife says I should have been a single guy since there isn't time for my hobbies and her in any given day.
One day when and if I figure out how to post pictures I'll show you guys my toys, but in the meantime thanks for the replies, Glenn

Here is mine. I is a reloading room/storage room/ garden shed.

I need to take new pictures because I now have a slick Dillon RL 550B where the RCBS press is sitting.

When I move in the next 3 years. I am going to build a room in the basement and have three different areas.
Area 1: Reloading with bullet, powder, and Primer storage.

Area 2: Gun maintnance and minor gunsmithing (Hope to get a mini lath and mini mill some day).

Area 3: Case prep and cleaning with tumblers and all case prep tools.

Area 3a: tv and stero to watch hunting videos in Surround sound.
