Topology for a remote building

I'm currently running centurylink fiber in Seattle and our 4 fl townhouse that has a row of remote garages about 100 ft from our building.   

I've pimped out the garage into a quarantine gym and I want connectivity there, as well as improving WIFI in the house itself, plus ditching the rented CL router/modem.

We have a bit of a weird setup. The fiber ONT is from the pole to our garage and then to our closet on the 3rd floor (via cat 5e).   CL also requires PPPoE and Vlan Tagging, which eero presently doesn't do (no biggie).

My plan is to install a router/dhcp server in the garage (prob an Edgerouter4 lite) and add a eero puck out there to serve up wifi in the garage.  Then another where my current router to be replaced is on the 3rd floor closet/switch is, and another on floor 1 so inside the house Ethernet backhaul. 

I think this will work, but i'm worried about performance as i'm actually dragging the first post router connection to serve up WIFI outside my house and then chaining it to the other two inside over 100ft away.

So my question is, am I going to be seeing a performance hit with a setup this way (ie having my fastest speed in my garage vs the house where I wfh, stream, spend most of our time?  Also, would you recommend PROs vs the pucks in this setup?
