How big is your shop, and how big should it be.

by MarkT

I will retire in a year or two and will be building a new house and shop to retire to. Actually it may be a huge shop with a bedroom in one corner. But I have been doing the usual cycle of starting small, adding on until I can't possibly afford it, then scrapping the design and starting over. So the question is how big is too big? What do you use and how big is realistic?
