Once the gasoline and oil is drained, all overhaul work can be done indoors.
Without gas, there is little risk and working indoors is generally much more
convenient. Therefore, you need to decide where to set up for the overhaul.
The best location will be relatively dust free, well lit, and not likely to
be required for other purposes. Your engine may be remain in a disassembled
state for some time if you need to obtain replacement parts. Also, even with
its bodily fluids removed, an old engine will stink. Therefore, the dining
room table is probably not the ideal choice!
