I agree with Tony about the measuring things out .I have a table saw close to the front entrance of my shop going across the width of my shop (24”) with a chop saw station on one wall and my jointer on the other across from my cabinet saw It leaves about 30” on both sides of the table saw, adequate to walk but sometimes limiting to move equipment around and larger pieces of furniture I make, if I would have had more room I would have gone 30ft wide. I also have 14’ tall ceilings (for wood storage)but should have gone 16’ where I could have made loft storage.
I did make chases in my concrete floor to run my dust collection, air and electrical for my saw and benches that has worked out very well. If your going to use this building for a garage and shop I would have a divider wall with people door and sperate garage doors for the shop and garage, to keep saw dust off cars bikes etc. and to keep gas fumes out of the woodshop to minimize a fire hazard.
