Mine is on built up benchwork and ranges from 36" to about 72". How high to make it depends somewhat on your height. I used armpit level as the baseline for the height of the rest of the layout. That way I can comfortably reach the back of the layout in the area that is armpit level. Areas further up from the floor require a step stool to work on. Try to keep everything within three feet of the edge of the layout. Any more than that and you will need access hatches or ways to get on top of the layout to work on it.

I put a good size loop and Christmas display on the floor around the Christmas tree and would not want to work on the floor for a permanent layout.
