First thing I would consider is replacing the bi-fold louvered doors with something solid and with a tight seal. This will keep the dust minimized from the shop to the common area. Even with that I believe you will still be in trouble constantly with the wife and family....he he

Dust is one of the major drawbacks of woodworking. A good dust collection system with low digit micron (1 or less) bags is a must. You will most likely want to consider an air filter system as well. Your work area is very small and dust concentration will rise rapidly with any amount of work at all. This dust WILL travel into the other area no matter what you do, so minimizing it will be be your first priority at best.

I'm sure some of the more experienced folks will be along to offer even more and better advice and I too will be watching and learning.
