Find out if you have something like that RR Yard Supply place near you, where the farmers go to buy their metal for their buildings. You can save a lot of money that way by buying from someone like that.

Welcome to The RailRoad Yard Inc. Homepage, Your One Stop Steel Shop, located South of Stillwater, Oklahoma

The same metal I bought there cost double at Lowe's.

Here's a fancier version of what I did:

I used wood instead of all the metal poles and no "feeder" doors, just a solid back. It's about the same size though.

I'm good at this, I made two (three if you count the time one was dismantled and moved). Any way one was 10 by 10 and the other was 8 by 12, both under $400 each.

We used economy studs (rough 2 by 4s) and chip broad, the miss ordered shingles, and miss mix stain. Long as you stain chip board really well, and keep organic material away from the sides, it will last until you can get siding. You some times can get extra siding, even constructing business sometimes have part bundles of shingles and stuff they'll give you.

Good luck

That's what I built for under $600, but used wood beams and posts and wood cross posts. I bought all my lumber from the '2nd's pile' at Lowes, and the metal itself is pretty inexpensive too. To buy one pre-made and have it delivered would cost me over $1000 and it wouldn't be that big.

We too are pricing things as well. We wanted a 10x20 (200sqf is the largest we can build in our area without a permit) and all the materials (including concrete for the posts) was about $1200+ tax :-/

Unfortunately though, my husband won't allow it to be plywood or osb "just for now", he wants it all done at once, so that sucks for me! If your folks will allow it to be plywood/osb, you can side it later.

This isn't mine, but this is how mine is built. If I wanted to I could put dividers in and have 3 "stalls" and put gates across and shut them in, if I wanted to go that way. I think this one is maybe taller than mine, mine is 12' tall, 12' deep and 24 wide. I put the solid back to the north because that's where our worst storms come from.

Here's another frequent style of loafing shed out here. Again, doesn't take a lot of material or skill to build and can be done very reasonably if you can do it yourself.
