Garage gym... but with no garage?

I really want to get a bar and some bumper weights... But I have no garage and my driveway is on a hill so it's not a great place to lift. Any ideas? I could maybe build a platform outside in the backyard but it would get covered with mud and be nasty and I have nowhere to store the weights. I imagine if I used the spare bedroom dropping the weights would destroy my floors. Any ideas?

If you really want them get them.

Keep them in your spare room then incorporate moving them out the back in your warm up. Could you set up a rack off the ground to store the weights in your back yard up against the house then get a plastic covering like a BBQ cover or outdoor furniture cover to protect the gear from dirt and mud.

Set up a shed in your back yard, go crazy. Sorry I love spending money, especially on my gym.

You don't have to drop the bar.
