    would a 6'8"x7' area be big enough to build an ho layout on?

    I would suggest an around the wall type layout depending on where your access would be to this level.

    If the access is through a trap door in the center, go around the walls for the layout. If the access is through a door on one wall, go around the walls with a big enough table on either side of the door to make turn back loops.
