Ummm, you seem to contradict yourself there.  Painters/decorators work at
their craft
wherever their craft is needed, not in their office/storage space.
Carpenters are the same.
Stone masons, it depends: those repairing buildings may do preparatory work
in their
"office" and other work on site; stone makers who carve gravestones rarely
do anything
except minor repairs in a graveyard.  Window construction these days is
usually in a
workshop rather than on site.

Going in the other direction, wood turners (who use a lathe to produce
bowls, vases, etc.)
are craftspeople with a workshop (which may also double as storage space
and as
an office for paperwork).  I've mapped one who had a home workshop and let
visit by appointment to see his wares and is in the process of moving to a
building which will house his workshop and also be a shop for his own wares
other handicraft such as jewellery produced by others.  I'll map that as a
shop, and
maybe fit his workshop in if there's room without a renderer collision

A dedicated storage area is not a shop, or an office, or a workshop.  Going
by the other
values, craft=* is for workshops/studios and not shops or offices.  Places
where the craft
is actually performed, not where the results are sold, the raw materials
are stored or
the paperwork is done.
