I have an air ratchet and the other useful tools that use air (rattle gun & impact gun). Having a compressor is a good thing!
The shop... get a floor poured, then you can set it up. If needed a generator can be used to provide the power & will come in handy later.

I have some air tools, and a portable compressor... but there's always stuff that needs doing where there's no place to plug in the compressor (and I don't think my portable generator will play nice with the compressor, despite the nominal ratings seeming to line up).
For the workshop, the "barn" was originally built as a workshop, but never finished. Got a nice concrete slab, and the structure, siding, insulation, and so on, but it needs wiring, plumbing, drywall, and so on.
The new construction that's needed is a storage building to get the equipment (and flammables) out of the barn. Probably some sort of prefab metal garage, but we'll need to work out the details and arrange to have the site prepped, concrete poured, and all that stuff, along with all the other things we're trying to get done during a building boom / labor shortage.
