The metal shop is small, I would turn the finishing room in to more metal shop/machine rebuild space. The reason for that is that you want big gaps around the mill and lathe even more than a woodworking tool. That space is good for storing tooling and other things you want to keep out of the dust. By the way your corner placement of the milling machine is a bad idea and you want several feet to the left of the lathe clear so pieces can hang out of the headstock.

I would move the finishing room down to the bottom so it is close to the roll up door making it easier to get big pieces out of the shop.

If at all possible, add a bathroom.

You have a lot of space, try not to wind up with an oversized wood shop and a dysfunctional metal shop.
