I was thinking much what Rand was thinking:

140,000 cubic feet is a LOT of volume to heat, cool, humidify, etc.

And … yeah … it IS pretty difficult to keep ALL the dust from the shop OUT of the house, but … with a good combination of dust collector, shop air filtration, and weatherstripping around the door BETWEEN shop and home … you can do a pretty good job of it.

One thing that helps is maintaining a bit of NEGATIVE pressure in the shop. I use a twin-fan dealie that mounts IN my shop window, and is set for exhaust.

That way, when I open my stairway door, it tends to pull air FROM the house, rather than push dusty air FROM the shop.

Good luck ! Sounds like a pretty good problem to have :-)
