The budget issue is best solved with good used tools IMO (if the opportunity arises…watch Craigslist and the classifieds here). Going the route of cheap new tools will yield lesser performance, lower value, and more money wasted in the long run.

The space issue is tougher to tame, and will require some creativity and compromise. All big tools should be on wheels, portable versions may need to suffice, and some things may need to perform double duty. Ie: May workbench doubles as an outfeed table for my table saw. My TS has the router table built into an extension wing. One of the guided circular saw systems may need to play the role of a good TS.
