I went with a cheap 30x40x12 with no eave overhangs and trusses at 4' (Wish I would have went with eaves to keep the snow away from the building when it slides off the roof), it was only $500 more to go from 10' to 12' side walls so it was a no brainer. Built in 2010, I contracted out the shell and did the rest myself.

Shell: $11,000
Concrete with footings for a future lift: $2100 and a few friends.
Electrical with a 100' run from meter: $2000 with me helping the electrician.
Insulation on sidewalls, 7/16" OSB, and putting 2x6x8 studs between the posts: $1500 approx.
Paid amish to put steel on interior cieling and insulate roof: $1500-$2000?

I was quoted $30,000 from a major pole barn builder for the same project complete from start to finish, the finish work may have been a little nicer, but saved about $10,000 doing it myself.
