I built a 24×40 “Pole Barn” the year after I retired. Fully finished and insulated. 100 amp service, tube heat and lotsa light. 5hp air and a blast cabinet. I work on just about anything, woodworking, welding, fabrication, auto repairs, restorations.
Most of my woodworking tools are on mobile bases so I can make room for something big in the shop if need be.
Bisggest issue I have is, if I’m set up for a wood project, I have to stop and clean up before I can weld or cut metal for myself or someone else and visa-versa. It’s kind of a pain but I’m not really in that big of a hurry.
Carved in stone Rule of Thumb for shop size: It can NEVER be TOO BIG! The amount of stuff you have will always expand to fill the available space.
