You probably have this in consideration, excuse the story. This is just what comes to mind whenever I think about building.
I built my garage and made it extra long for my workshop. Over my lifetime I have had two friends lose their shops/garages to fires. I also accidentally started a fuel fire in the garage when I was young while fooling with my first car. Luckily I figured out how to use the fire extinguisher and got it out without burning down the place. Scared the "H" out of me
Those experiences have made me safety minded. Just a reminder, line your shop, including the ceiling, with fireproof gypsum board, plan to store all fuel and flammables in a shed away from the shop and have fire extinguishers place in easy to see locations.
Edit: I have remembered two more shop fires over the years, one lost a race track Corvette and another lost a 40 ford with a 427 L88. Both lost the entire shop and parts of their house. Excuse again.
