Door Swing?

Any of you with smaller shops/sheds have a preference on which way the man door opens? Have a garage door on the front and need to purchase and hang the man door. Trying to decide between having the door swing out, giving me more room inside (12x16 shed), or swinging in for a more natural feel and doesn't open toward our patio.

Things to consider: where will the door swing be least obtrusive for your usage.. If it is going to cause an obstruction in your shop then have it swing out otherwise I would go with in swing, which is typical in residential applications.
On a standard door and frame this provides better weather protection and security because the latch/bolt is behind the stops.
