Yes... Size became issue as soon as I start laying out pcb with both counters. So after couple of unsuccessful shrinking attempts I decided to make modifiable board that can be sandwiched on the top of another one, thus giving me two (or more) circuits connected into each other.
Work still in progress but here is what I got so far actual size is 2" x 2.25"
One timer can drive multiple boards (hopefully, not tested yet) or each can have one for different timing
and each board counter can be configured differently using jumpers
