United States

As you can see, I have a very small shop, 15×30.
But it’s big enough to keep me busy and to always be messy!

As it was originally a storage room, my son rewired it with a bunch more outlets as well as 220 and it has worked out great! The duct work for the dust runs through the attic on an 8” trunk with 6” branches and then 4” at the gates. The air lines are also in the attic with both the DC and compressor on the other side of the wall, in the garage, which helps keeps the noise down.

The floor space savings, along with the sanity (lack of noise) that putting the DC and compressor in another room is the only way to go if you can finagle it. I like the idea of going through the attic, it has kept the walls much cleaner without the ducting. great idea.
Don’t sell yourself short, a 15×30 isn’t a very small shop by any means, it’s a decent size. I spent years working out of a 10’x15’ 1940’s era garage before getting a dedicated shop. And it looks like you have a nice layout in the space you have. Well done.

Nice Woodshop, plenty of woodworking accomplishments can be achieved there. It’s bigger than my first woodshop.
