Torque wrench is a must. You can spend a ton of money on a nice torque wrench but you also spend about $15 on a cheap one that is better than not having one at all.

Check out this link: https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/tools

Chain reaction has the X-tools brand and they are quality at a fraction of the price of Park tools. everything below can be found on the first page of the link I provided.

My Suggestions if you are building your little in-home shop:
Good Bike Stand
Set of T-handle Allen key set
Torque Wrench with attachments.
Cone spanner set
Bottom bracket tool ( press fit and threaded )
Cassette removal tool
Cable and shifter hose cutters
Chain Whip
Chain breaker tool
Chain wear indicator
Headset press. ( nice to have but really only needed if you are building bikes )
If you are building wheels - Truing stand, Spoke tension tool, Nipper
