I'm moving to Portland and I don't even know what neighborhood to look in.

I'm a vaguely artsy-intellectual sort and would enjoy similar folks. Poor ones, I'd guess, 'cause I don't wanna spend much money.

I need considerable workshop space with a habitable chunk (i.e. electricity & plumbing). Maybe something on the order of a former auto repair garage. Or weirder.

I would have been unable to answer if you had, like so many do, expected to find Lake Oswego or Pearl District style accomodations at East Gresham prices. However, it appears you are realistic about what your surroundings will resemble. In Oregon, specifically, Portland, it really won't be that bad. I'd look North of Portland first. The area just to the south east of the airport might have what you want. Areas in the close in NE and SE are being gentrified and are getting pricey. Still, if you are coming from an area with a very high COL you might think NE/SE prices are a steal so do look for yourself. Last you can go further out east or west but especially east and space will increase relative to price. When I lived in Salem I saw exactly what you are looking for all the time in Craigslist. I've never looked for studio space in PDX so I don't know how it compares but give Salem a look as well, you never know.
