How thick were the pieces?
The bottom is 3/4 and the sides are 1/2, just because that's what was available.
I used 3/8" for the walls and floor, and 5/8" for the roof and door.
3/4" floor, 1/2" sides.
We used 3/4" for the roof so we could nail the shingles down without nails coming through.
I'd use 3/4 for the floor in most cases, and would not personally use anything less than 1/2" for the walls and roof (my uncle has had a raccoon rip through 3/8" plywood, although I daresay it was not in mint condition at the time). 3/8" for the walls is not bizarrely unreasonable, it's just that I wouldn't do it myself
Good luck, have fun,
