Do it all frame?

Hi all. Have been wanting to build a Maslow for a couple years, so have ready plenty on the forums over time, but I just finally ordered my Maker Made kit and will be building soon. I have seen a lot of clever frames, but has anyone done it all in one? I would love to see some pictures and feedback (and if none I will share my adventures later).

I want a frame that will have:
12’ top beam
plywood storage
adjustable skirt (first thought is adjust for 1/4" to 1" cutting material)
built in shop vac
built in computer
casters

Another question on the 12’ top beam. I know I need longer chains than were supplied with my kit. Is there much of a difference extending my existing chains (ie buying a 10ft chain, cutting in half, and linking each half to the two existing chains), or am I better off buying two proper 15ft chains?

Thanks all.

built in computer

a pi to run webcontrol? or something with a monitor/keyboard?

no real difference.

Something with a monitor and keyboard. I made another post over in the Software category. I have a panel PC that I’d like to use to run ground control. It is touch screen but will have a wireless keyboard for it also.
