HVAC is one area that I am confident in..Given what you have described I would go with a roof mount system with the ducts in the ceiling as this is the most practical for a commercial type building..Of course you can use an updraft furnace to feed one of those systems if you cannot do a roof mount. When one does the heat loss one finds the A/C is the energy sucker and the heating load not so much..To keep heating/cooling costs down we cool to 75 in the summer and heat to about 55/60 in the winter..this seems to work out fine for a working shop..The wood burner may be a problem as I am not aware of any A/C units that use wood for the heat side.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
