Nice! That should be more than enough for a starter rocket and silo. You'll need a few thousand for the rocket (2000 for the basic steam engine is the big one), and then maybe 1500 for the silo roof (at least 2 bunker doors, plus some surrounding bits).

It sounds like you're going for a more "luxurious" space area than I usually go for--my dupes stay in their suits when they're up there. But I should really consider making it more comfortable up there.
