comment Can multiple computers install to the same shared SteamApps folder?
I know the binaries are different between two OSes... but I don't know if steam uses different filenames for the different binaries. If the filenames are different then they could both exist. If not, then they couldn't.

@ColinD the shared drive is an SSD array, and the NAS has a gigabit connection. It already handles media tasks faster than the spinning drives in my desktop.

comment What is the ideal setup for multiple Steam accounts on one computer, including guests?
@kotekzot Installing anywhere else would require administrative permissions. Does Steam require / ask for those on Windows?

That KB answer seems to apply to both steam accounts using the same OS-user. Can you confirm? Also, does that 'Custom Content' include mods? If so, that's not great; some mods are multiple gigabytes in size.
