You first need to decide what kind of clock room you want:

At one extreme you have a clock vault you never change anything in,
with incredibly stable temperature & humidity, but stabilization
times of days or weeks.

At the other end you have an environmental chamber which hits temperature
and humidity in a matter of minutes after you closed them.

If you want to do this low budget, consider getting a couple of old
fridges or freezers and run water of your chosen temperature
through their cooling loops.  That way you can have multiple different
climates and keep soom stuff stable while you play with other stuff.
