That’s actually a nice size for a shop. Everyone wants bigger, but that will do nicely. As for the layout, I’m in my 4th shop (the first was our garage, the next 3 free standing) and while I tried to do layouts for all of them….it always changed. It’s much easier to look at a real room and the tools in t and come up with a plan. So I’m saying what you have is good for now. I’ll ditto what Eric said about it being separate, no dust as well as no noise problems…but it is more expensive; and don’t forget the heat part along with how much electric you want to run out there (I’d say 100 amps, for you and the future owners).
