My real dad has his big ol compressor in an elevated room above some shelves in his pole barn.
I hear ya - no pun inteneded!

I would rather go outside with it and free the space, better noise levels etc.

But then...

I started thinking about framing and pouring a pad.
Buying all the shed supplies
Building the shed
Insulating and painting the shed
Buying more wiring and conduit
Buying more copper, air lines etc
Moving the freaking thing by myself!

It was too much money/time right now for what little space/quiet I'd gain.

Maybe my next shop....
