BTW - I reload in the house and clean rifles in the garage. Maybe that deal will work for you along with roses and chocolates or something. All women have some weaknesses, capitalize on it!
I have a couple electric heaters in the garage and looking to improve on that, I can make it comfortable enough for me to "work" there and I do lots of other "tinkering" in the winter.
Condensation or temp changes is my concern, so it would be best to "store" the stuff in the garage if thats where I will be reloading?
And now on AlWAYS clean in the garage!

If the garage doors are too drafty you can hang a temporary curtain across them easily and seal out the cold.
Making the garage more work friendly is pretty easy. Kit Plane builders and Hotrodders do it all the time.
The Garage is insultated and finished, just no heat so once again that is my main goal, I just keep finding other projects to take me money first!
