You don't need studs every 16 or 24 inches. Pole barns, at least around here, have poles or posts 4 to 8 feet apart. The siding is attached to purlins or boards going across that are 4 feet apart. It's the same for sheet metal roofing.
I think there should be at least one more post in the back. Depending on how deep the posts go, you might want to add bracing in the corners. I can't tell how big the posts are but they do look small.
Otherwise, I think you did a good job on your own. Posted via Mobile Device
