I have found that, during the week, it is not hard to find and get permission to use a church auditorium, or find out when a local college's recital hall will be empty and reserve it. Other than that, I find that a two-car garage makes a great practice room (without the cars;^) , and I now mostly use my shop, a 20' X 40' building in the back yard. It is very well-insulated, but my neighbors can still occasionally hear my practice. They don't mind it, and encourage me to keep it up. I think the secret is finding the right neighbors!
