need some advise on building paint booth

Hey guys so here is the deal 2 years ago I built my workshop its 30x40 12ft inside tall.3 bays

I like doing lot of body/paint work and was thinking to add one more bay to connect to the end of the shop.

as of now not to sure on the size it will be 30ft deep since that's what the shop is now so to keep it the same. as for width need to think about it

so my question is how wide should I make it? I just need it to fit one car etc.

and how should I plan ventilation?

I am in Canada so winter time is a problem since if I put filtered fans lets say in the walls I will draw in cold air. I like to keep it as simple as possible I am 29 and don't have tons to spend into high-tech booth.

EDIT I has this idea.lets say the far wall I add 4 windows and when each window is open I get perfect size filters to fit in. so in other words. when booth is in use open windows and get filtered exhaust. and then when not in use close the windows to keep heat in.

and for pushing air. do I have to have 2 fans blowing in fresh air? or can I have 2 fans mounted on the floor just to push air out the exhaust?
