              good lighting,fans(for cooling your self) i like a rolling work station as it tends to very help for me.mine is 29"high 36" wide 6' long on 6 casters if space would allow i would also think that some type of rack to hold your most used hand tools like drivers hammers(yes you will need and want about 5-10 hammers) rules and many other things would help as well ,but that is something more that you would want build.

                I think the above posts said it pretty well, but if you live in Peoria I'd go for the "1000 ton" A/C unit first.

                It's already too hot for me!
