I went with 10’ in my current shop, and I’ve had 9’ in the past. I actually found 9’ to do just fine, but I do like to 10’ a little better.It’s pretty easy to hold that 8’ piece of lumber up a little when you swing it around; 10’ allows you to do that without breaking the lights. I do suggest you consider something. Putting your DC duct behind the ceiling may sound like a good idea (and maybe it is) but that ductwork may clog, forcing you to somehow access it to clean it out. More likely, you’ll do something (like buy a new tool) that requires you to rework it a little. Having it exposed makes both those tasks easier. Just saying…..
