    Why not? Is the basic frame sound?

    The frame is sound but there is a hole in the roof I will have to fix. And the door rotted off but that should be easy. There are windows that are missing some panes but I know how to replace those.

    Take a good look at the foundation before you spend any time or money on it.

    It might be a good idea to shore up the foundation with some sturdy pavers or concrete blocks? You don't want all of your hard work to go to waste.
    I would certainly add a 1/2" hardware mesh apron around it on all 4 sides.
