10-4 with Bondo: swinging an 8’ board around without breaking anything.

I have had 2 shops with 10’ ceilings with blown in insulation in the attic and both were very comfortable.
I did not do work that required higher than 10’ ceilings so that was not an issue.
the 8’ fluorescent shop lights were flush mounted and did not hang down. (something else to consider).
a good carpenter framing crew can use dimensional lumber to create a lower framework for drywall
if you did not want to go with the traditional wire and metal frame grid style suspended ceiling.

enjoy your new digs !!!!
