Ok, new plan. Surprise! Looks like the Mrs. Isn’t totally against the idea of a shop in the garage. Major pluses are of course concrete floor, electricity, and storage from way back when I put cabinets in. I could then build a much smaller shed in the back at my leisure, put in a dehumidifier and heater and store the more manageable stuff out there.

One thing I need advice on. I’d LOVE to build some dividers to portion off the shop from the washing machine and fridge. Can anyone suggest and easy way to do this without going the whole framing route? I really don’t wan to drill the floor, but I can access the attic to use the joists.

Any thoughts from you experts? Image a 2 car garage section of about a 2/3 square for the shop, and the rest a big “L” for the back and side for other stuff.
