    Indeed. I'm contemplating on going with a 8x5 to save some money. I really dont want to go over 750.

    All very good suggestion above. At the risk of repeating some of the above comments my top four things to consider:
    1. 5x6 minimum.
    2. roof needs to overhang windows. Think sun and rain.
    3. mice are going to have a field day with insulation. Mouse heaven.
    4. Spend your money on a good door and good windows. Money well spent.
