Shipping container workshop
My shed concept housed in a 20' shipping container. From the outside, it looks just like a regular container, but on the inside it is a completely transportable workshop.
- framed internally with pine, stuffed with fiberglass insulation, and lined with ply
- halogen down lights in the ceiling
- bench, 4m long, 900mm wide
- 300mm sliding miter saw
- router table (router can be replaced with a table saw, using the same guides, fence etc)
- router/table saw near the doors to allow long lengths to be fed in
- router/table saw positioned to avoid interference with miter saw when feeding long lengths
- wood vise at end of bench
- drill press
- pegboard on the side wall for small hand tools
- clamp rack on one wall, turning tools on opposite wall
- shelving above the bench for small items, hardware etc
- shelving on the rear wall for large items, drills, planes, sanders, circular saws etc
- space in the corners for standing tall items, brooms, etc
- space under the bench for timber storage, dust extraction etc

How transportable do you want this.
If going from one site to another then scrap the pegboard and sheves and make more drawers for storage.
Anything that is on pegs and shelve will fall of in transit.
Make the bench 600 wide gives you more working room. You will need that more than bench space to move around in.

Ditch the halogen downlights, in a 20 foot space they will heat up the interior I would think. If you out drop down panels on the interior of each door when the doors were opened the panels could be lifted to join in the middle and effectively extend the covered area.
