    A client of mine has one in his basement - we built a full height block work room with a 4" thick steel door, mesh in the walls / ceiling etc however this affords him the luxury of having a nice gun rack, rather than opening and closing the cabinet! Although he doesn't reload, there's enough room for a full length bench - we put some heating in there as well as free air ventilation.

    If if and when I move (likely to be a project) that is top of my list to have an integral or add-on room for storage, reloading, cleaning, mending etc in comfort and peace.

    When we constructed his we spoke to one of the Hampshire FEO's (needed a room big enough for guests to store their guns too when staying overnight between shoots). It was a worthwhile discussion, with pointers from RFD guidance paired down to suit a residential situation and lower risk.

    Thing is, if you're starting from scratch you can quite easily make it very secure without much outlay at all - the acces door really being the only thing he had to look for / procure. As it's our bag too it's a real labour of love - something to plan and make perfect

    Mine is a large cupboard with a link, but separate code, to the main house alarm. Multipoint locks on the door and a pin coded safe within that. The police were more impressed with the alarm than anything else as it means no-one can access the gun cupboard unless they know the 6 figure code without setting the alarm off.

    My vet pal in Germany converted a large room in the upper floor of his house but german houses are often built with thick Jtong blockwork and concrete reinforced floor and ceiling so strong anyway as it was mid floor in a 3 story house, he had to fit into a non opening window frame bank teller armoured glass and a reinforced frame, but it looks like a posh hunting trophy room now with all his guns out on show.
