I'm not much help with the layout, but your equipment choices concern me. IMO, the weights should come before the treadmill and the rower (assuming you don't already own them.) If you go with rubber bumper plates you can forgo the platform if need be. A quality barbell is the best single piece of equipment you can own. With proper care, it will probably outlast your lifting career. More importantly, strength is the foundation of everything we do and the barbell is the best single tool for developing it. Endurance only matters if you have enough strength to perform an activity in the first place. You can get all the cardio you really need with weights and running outside.

Best of luck. I'm terribly envious of all that space!
