I’m in a 2 car with 1/2 a car of other stuff, and I regularly keep everything stowed so that I can pull in one car, and with some effort can also get the little car in too. Take a peek at this thread on Workmates I know that they are shunned by some but the older ones from the 80’s regularly come up on Craigslist for about $20, and I have 4 right now. With the lower legs folded and it placed on a furniture dolly, I clamp a “tabletop” in the jaws by a 2×4 cleat underneath for a great mobile table. For my saw I built a top that gives me outfeed . II also have a hollow core door that goes across two of them for a pretty big assembly table. Most everything else is all about taking advantage of the wall space and also space on the ceiling, with some deep shelves that are above the garage door. It’s usually open when I’m working so there’s no interference. Good luck, maybe the pics can help with some ideas. One day I’ll have space for the Roubo of my dreams but until then necessity is the mother of invention.
