what i did for ammo that doesn't fit in my safe is put it in a couple of the super large plastic bins (rubbermaid etc) and put a goldenrod in each one. you could do that for a larger cabinet etc that had a decent seal on it.

I would ask what size, volume, of space are you trying to control? Can you build your own? Dehumidifier and heater on control units should get the job done.

A BIG difference between a safe in a house and safe in an unconditioned garage or shed.

Of course, you could insulate and condition the garage or shed.

I gotta say...just to be absolutely truthful...that if any of you ever meet my wife you will know that I made it all up as a feeble attempt at humor. She is actually the one that is more concerned about my firearms than am I. She has never so much as frowned at one of my many purchases or at the many, many times I am out shooting one thing or another. She's the one that makes sure I go out and buy firearms specifically for her...think M1 Carbine(s) or a Springfield XDe or a Sig Trailside amongst others. And I'm dead serious in saying that she is a better shot than I am...with the right firearm anyway.

Let's just say that last fall we built a 10' x 22' "shed" thinking one day we would turn it into a guest house.

It might be turned into a gun and reloading room before it becomes a guest house...

I’d covert it to conditioned storage and workshop. A 110v mini split is less than $1000. Keep it at a vaguely reasonable temp and most can be set to dehumidify mode. Of course if you need someone to install it that’d probably up the price to 2-3x as much (sorry, not sure how much more. I do all my own permitted work).

Wife and I have been taking about buying a large property in western MD or WV. Thought I’d use it for camping for a couple of years. Then probably build cabins. Very plural.

Probably building them roughly 12x16. Do a communal bathhouse/cabin. If we move there in retirement probably build a real house. But on the smaller side. Use the cabins as guest houses for the kids visiting. Or if we have grandkids visiting some day. But I’d probably convert one to guns/hunting/ammo work shop. Probably won’t have a house big enough to have that at whatever the next place is.

By mounting the goldenrod as low as practically possible - AND HORIZONTALLY (keep this WIDTH in mind when ordering which LENGTH Goldenrod) - the slightly warm air rises to create a CONVECTION within the closed space ... works incredibly effectively and I lucked out as my multiple Treadloks allow for mounting at a very low point on the inside of the door ...

Never ceases to amaze me those danged things have been working non-stop - and 4 or 5 interstate moves - for going on OVER FORTY (40!) YEARS!!!!!!!!

GoldenRod® has a Lifetime Guarantee. Plug it in and forget about it! UL listed and made in the USA.

I have a goldenrod but am suspicious it does not get warm enough. I can easily hold it in my bare hand without any discomfort so I don't think it does much for raising in safe temps. Am I mistaken?
