Good to hear your story and I was in a similar situation many years ago and gradually moved from a small shop to a larger one and then larger again….. I am sure when you buy again one of the considerations will be workshop space as was mine…. no workshop or place to build one… not buying…lol….
BTW my classic 1962 Ford Falcon Shop Ute lives outside… oh well it is not a BOSS

My main shop is in my 1/2 of a 2 car garage, and all my machines are on wheels and can be moved easily
with the exception of my 12” 1950’s Delta lathe on a heavy steel frame. I made a Thien cyclone for my
shop vac and my 2 1/2” hose on my big dust collector, it makes it easier to keep the dust under control,
for some reason my beautiful lady does not like dust on her Bianchi, Gary Fisher bikes, or her minivan. By
carefully manuevering, I can store all my tools, and still pull my Ford Ranger 4X4 into the shop at night,
now I have to build my workshop,LOL. Plan carefully and then hope it works.
