I work in a very small room which is actually for domestic help to live in. For bigger projects I put up trestle tables in our courtyard at the back of the house and that works quite well (eg http://youtu.be/zzre33lW8cg ). I am however very grateful for the space I do have, as a friend of mine in the UK who is a better woodworker than me literally works out of a box as they live in a small house.
My Dad always taught me that the key to a great workshop is “a place for everything and everything in its place.” If you can quickly and easily access the tools you need when you need them then your craftsmanship is better and your state of mind is far better geared towards quality work. My dream however is still to have something like the picture I have included!
