I’ve got a small area in my basement shop. I have things set up to serve as outfeed tables to the other tools. My planer outfeeds onto the table saw, which feeds out onto the workbench. The shop vac is stashed under the workbench.

Consider the space before and after the cut. If you want to cut 8’ boards on a table saw, you need 8’ before the blade and 8’ after the blade. I’ve seen other posts on this topic where people have the windows strategically placed so you can open them to extend the after blade length. You could even build some shutters that fold down, to become outfeed tables.
