We have seen quite a few "temp stations" that can be but up used and then broken down. Nothin wrong at all with space constraints. In fact in most cases people have said their bench area is finally organized when they have to build it up and break it down hehe.

Well my thinking, being that I will be moving a bunch (every 6 months to few years), I am thinking of getting a pointed nosed trailer and building the reloading station in the front. It would also serve as a good bug out trailer.

I got my ideas

So I'm seeing a lot of indoors reloaders. My bench is n my garage, partially cuz I don't have room in my house. But also cuz I'm really not sure if I should reload in a ventilated area or not. So, I err on the side of caution and do it in my garage. I wouldn't mind having a dedicated room inside the house for it tho. Anyone know any facts on inside reloading and whether or not its more dangerous?

Mine is inside the house. My bench is next to a window that is usually kept opened. My bench is on a tiled floor. I polish the brass outside and turn my swamp cooler off or close my door when working with powder. The swamp cooler keeps all the house ventilated so there is no fumes inside my my little room where I reload/clean guns. If your going to reload inside your house I would at least have a window in that room and have a hard floor, no carpet. Wouldn't want the vacumcleaner exploding from spilled gun powder lol

The assembly process should be fine indoors. I have a 10 x 12 room in my large garage that I use for reloading. I am thinking of relocating the prep however. Especially the tumbler for case cleaning.

There are some restrictions to living on post here at FT Bliss, but the garage is actually not bad thanks to the dry climate – almost no humidity.

Finally set up my first permanent reloading bench. Here it is.

Oh and here is my beautiful wife helping me de-prime some 45 auto cases. Just 5 min after that I was de-priming/resizing and wasn't paying attention; caught my finger between the case and the die. Sliced it right open. Didn't feel to good.

With a wife as pretty as she is, I can see how you got distracted.

Here's my modest reloading bench. Not very pretty to look at, as I built it myself. First thing I built out of wood. Didn't bother to stain it or anything as I was anxious to start using it for its intended purpose, and it was just going to the garage. Works pretty damn well for what's need it for. I plan on adding some supports and a few luxuries (like drawers underneath) when I get to my next duty station sometime next year.
