Humidity issues

Just moved to Queenstown from Idaho. We don't have hurricanes in Idaho. Nor do we have this kind of humidity. I was planning to keep my firearms and reloading components in my barn/shed in the back yard but what do I need to do to protect my firearms and components (powder especially) from the humidity? I don't have room in the tiny house that we bought. Ideas?

Backyard sheds aren't safe for lawn mowers. Wave bye-bye because someone will be walking off with your stuff...

NOT in Maryland! You are living in a temperate RAIN FORREST! Add a room to the house, to keep these things in a climate controlled atmosphere, and a GOOD safe to protect against theft (just as likely as RUST).

You'll have to find room for it inside.
Its not fit to keep your stuff outside in our climate.
Don't even try.

Right there.
You might have to figure how to consolidate, different storage lockers, etc...but you have to control the climate.

My basement is too humid for guns.

The shed is so bad that plastic rusts.

like they said....no way no how in a shed or barn. Basements can be fine if done right. I have a finished basement with central HVAC, a dehumidifier and a golden rod in the safe and I am on the western side of the bay. No issues for the last 21 years. Make room for some kind of safe, maybe look into those in wall types.
