Well things have slowed down a bit and I've had time to consider some options for the interim to make things work better than they do now, which is mostly working out of boxes on the floor.
I have a couple of constraints as far as layout goes. Two large garage doors to start with. The main one on the front will be used for parking and automotive work. It's 16' wide and centered on the front of the building. This leaves about 7' on each side of it. I was wanting an office on one side as well as a place to sit and visit. Looks like it would be wide enough for the office part, but not so much for having a sitting area, so I nixed it for now. The office space will be heated by electric or a oil filled heater. The ceiling above will be a loft for storage.
The side garage door is a bit overkill (16'), Don't really need anything larger than an 8', so it will eventually be replaced with an 8' or a set of swinging doors. The tracks just take up too much space and that extra 8' would really make the shop part flow better or make for a better office area down the road. However I've partitioned around it for now and left some floor space for welding projects.
Since the first 40' of the shop has concrete floors, I'm trying to use as much of it as I can for shop. The gravel area will store lawn stuff, the trailer, and the majority of my wood materials (on racks)
I have to leave some clearance around the wood stove, so not much has been placed around it.
I've allowed for a finishing room next to the stove area, making sure the entrance was away from the stove. It will have proper ventilation and a non-flame heat source. I may also use this room for the CNC Router as it's noisy and usually is set to run which I can walk away from it for a while to let it do it's thing.
Anywhoo, this is what I've decided that I can do for now and what I think will work for me. I'm planning to put in a metal ceiling with cellulose insulation above it, then the walls can be put up.
I haven't added much in the way of cabinets yet, but these will be place around the DP and Miter Saw areas.
