This has been pretty well covered, but I just wanted to add a few misc. observations…

” keep all the extra stuff that she doesn’t want “cluttering up the house”
If this is in play, there certainly is no such thing as big enough. The only shops I’ve ever seen on video that looked “big enough” were shop only, with zero encroachment from the above quotation.

The ONLY way to keep that at zero is to have some other space for that stuff to go. Another building, a basement, an attached garage, a high-cube shipping container…someplace.

Second, I think “too big” is actually possible if you try to line the whole bloody thing with machines rather than making work zones out of it. Case in point…my sister’s kitchen. If you want to make yourself a snack, plan on using up the calories you’re about to eat just walking between the sink and the fridge. Just walking around the island takes 5 minutes out of your day (seriously, you could land a crippled jet on that thing). So, too big is possible…but it would be a good problem to have. ;)

-- Last week I finally got my $*i# together. Unfortunately, it was in my shop, so I will probably never find it again.
