Here's a rough shop plan, I've changed a few things since this was drawn, but it's close.
Since the room is so narrow, all the tools and bench will go on the North wall. I'll add a second window into the garage directly across from the "real" window", so I can ventilate on nice days. The lathe sits directly in front of the north window. This'll be nice.
Cabinets - I'll look at ReStore for used cabinets. I don't want anything 'open' as the shavings and dust create too much mess. ReStore is a fun place to look around.
I'll build a wood base for my small bandsaw, so it'll sit on top of the small tablesaw. I rarely use the tablesaw, so this should work well.
I'm planning to purchase a nice, ie- QUIET, dust collector, either a Fein or Festool. I'll build a small rolling cart for it and add a Dust Deputy . Finally, I'll mount my grinder on top of this cart. Everything has to do multiple duty with my limited space.
