Steve’s recent “Sofa Layout” was an excellent illustration of using available space if you don’t have a basement or a loft. Garages are often too crowded. I live in the countryside & don’t have either & my workshop/shed is too dirty for a model railway. My solution was to buy an old caravan which I park next to the house. At 150 pounds it was cheaper than a new shed. It is waterproof, dustproof and has tons of cupboard space. I took out the beds etc and put in some light worktops.
I was able to build a layout 14 feet long down one side, 6 feet across the top and 8 feet down the other side with room for a small workbench at the other end.
Here are some pictures if you are interested.

( this way I can run US, UK & European locos & rolling stock all given as Gift Aid to this remnant of colonial Africa).
Please keep up the great site. Thanks to all the contributors. Can we have some “industrial” cheats to download so we Europeans can use them?
How impressive is that! I loved it. Well done to Duncan. Just goes to show, where there’s a will, there’s a way…
Latest ‘ebay cheat‘ sheet is here.
