My “shop” is also my garage. My tools share their home with 2 vehicles, 4 bikes, a lot of sporting goods and a variety of lawn equipment. When set-up in shop mode, it is very practical. To set-up into full shop mode takes about 30-40 minutes, to return to garage mode takes about 90 minutes (funny how the math works).

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your shop. It sounds like it will be an interesting tour. I tried for years to keep both a shop and a garage. I finally just got tired of the constant set up and tear down and ended up putting my truck outside. And, as I have often said, one of the advantages of this is that is gave me more room to add tools.
