    I'm a little bit of a Craigslist junkie. I get on there multiple times a day just to look at the chickens, goats, and sheds. It was really no problem to look it up real quick. If the OP wants to change the siding on the second post, the T1-11 is pretty cheap just to get a sheet.

    I realize that I'm not in your neck of the woods, however I thought of the same thing. We have two Lowe's, and one Home Depot in town, and I was able to find an 8' x 6' display model for sale at one of the Lowe's for under $450. (They list the unbuilt "kit" for $598.) It was perfect for what I had in mind! After crunching the numbers for lumber, supplies, paint, my labor, etc., this turned out to be a winner. I even found a deal on delivery as Lowe's would not touch it. (I bought it through the manufacturer since it actually belonged to them; not Lowe's.)

    Might be worth checking in your area, and if not, perhaps this can help someone else.


    Here's a shot of it when I got it in the backyard. I used the PVC to roll it into position. Still working on the mods, and run.
