I was going to see if i could build a small shop maybe like with a small heater in it for those cold winters i was hope like a 10x10 or a 10x12 to fit my mower in it so i can work on it i was also thinking of using wooden pallets and tearing them apart to use the wood i was looking at Arlild365's shop and i like that. So it would not be a bad thing if you guys would tell me what you think would be good Question

I always say for size "think of what size would work for you then double it, it will pay off in the future." You'll want a good strong workbench, lots of lighting, an exhaust vent, and I like to have some type of overhang on an outside wall just in case if you have to sit something out for awhile. There is other stuff to consider too like shelving and tool storage but to me that stuff is the last thing to worry about.
