Hi Bungy

I thought you might be interested in my shop layout, it might give you inspiration of what you can get into a small space. I have 700 square feet in the main workshop, 450 in the work area and 350 for lumber storage, the ceiling height is only 6’10”, sometimes a minor problem in a commercial workshop.

The secret is organization and keeping it tidy – place for everything and everything in its place. – I am in the process of expanding it at the moment, which will take it to a 700 square foot main workshop 450 for machines and 350 for hand work (2 benches), for two people to work in. the lumber is being relocated.

Paint the walls and ceiling white, use fluorescent strips 4500K + (daylight/white blue) and movable down lighters/spots (so you can move them easily if your layout changes) where you need them

If you have any questions or want higher resolution layout pictures, just e-mail or PM me- good luck
