Shopping around, buying cull lumber from HD, (selecting the best from the pileetc ), and buying from the habitat restore fro as much material as I could find. I was able to build and side this 10X14 shed with a full 5 foot high loft for under $1500 taxes in.
It has a sturdy g&t board floor, and I next plan to add a work counter.
First I used 12 30lb bags of gravel and placed some free patio slabs on top for the double 2X6 rails on which to place the frame for the floor.

As you can see the board floor makes a sturdy platform on which to build on.

Applying OSB sheathing.

Inside looking from front to back. Note stairs for loft not built yet, so using step lader to access it. Stairs included in stated cost. Please excuse the mess.

And last the loft. Wife and kids allready have it full. Not to mention boxes from things I bought mentioned on rfds.
The walls are only 7 feet high and the ceiling is dropped to allow more head room for the loft. I bought the siding from the habitat restore for $50. It was white so I painted it with exterior latex the color shown at HD $30. Vinyl paints quite well and holds the paint better than wood.
So this is my shed/barn hope you all like it as much as I did building it. I still have to do something with the eaves and want to also add gutters (also considered in the costs as for new not used material).
