My "shop" is actuallly one half of a pole barn that had a wood shop built inside it in the mid 1950s. No heat, no cooling, no insulation but does have a timber floor and stud walls and rafters with plasterboard. It could be 0*F in winter or 100*F in summer. All my aircraft are hanging from the ceiling all the time except when going flying.
Rust can be a problem so I paint music wire landing gear parts as needed but other than that they are fine. I do have a room in the house to build in the winter but major cutting or sanding is dome in the shop if not too cold.
