Good planning work. What kinds (sizes) of things do you build? What kind of lumber storage would you need?

Since all it would take is time, I’m going to suggest something offbeat.

A lot of the tools around the periphery would like some space both sides. Like RAS, drill press.

The lathe is a stand alone tool—esp. if it’s on wheels and it’s not a part of your regular kind of project. Could it sleep in furnace room?

And could a bunch of those tools that use DC and need clearance around them be in a cluster back to back in the center?

Could you work at the workbench if it were against a wall?

I don’t want to cause you a lot of time here, but I think your space is confined enough and your tool array is large enough that trying some more things on paper would be healthy.
