Sometimes you can find a spot at work to use, like a cellar or unused room that is shabby, I have done a lot work at my job off hours using their space and equip if they have it. I've painted a bike or two of parts, rebuilt carbs, etc. At present I have access to a machine shop, bead blaster, ultrasonic cleaner, degreaser. Minimum I had a utility closet to work in. Also check to see if there is a Makerspace in your area.
