The downsides are, I only have 1 old rusty bar, not enough plates or accessories, my rack is wood but will last until I can afford a good one, I have to put down a rubber mat for deadlifts (housing would kill me if I chipped my floor), no spotters, it gets nasty cold in the winter.

I do go from time to time to the base gym to use machines or do cardio in bad weather. It also lets me to train to failure without the dangers of doing it alone at home. They also have a nice rubber running track and a pool.
That sounds wicked dude! Make shift is awesome! It's cool because it's your gym! Sounds cool, dude!
