You keep picking siding that will needs painting and at some point is going to rot again. If you went with vinyl, no painting ever, no rot. Simple to put on. It's about $80.00 per square, that's 10'X10".

That style siding comes in a 2 sq. box.
You would also need 4 outside corners, 5/8 J molding for around the door and windows, 1, piece of utility trim for under the windows, some 1-1/4 rooking nails and 4 starter strips.

Your going to have to measure the lenght X the height of the area on all sides and add it up. Then divide by 100 to come up with a figure. At Home depot you can just buy some by the piece if it comes out to an odd number.

You want to get rid of OSB completely. If the bottom edge has rotted, the rest will rot eventually with it. It's truly not worth hte money to burry "siding" that is potentially rotting in front of your face. It'll only serve to comprimise the structure.

Get rid of the OSB completely, put down some plywood over it, put tyvek over the plywood, and then put on whatever siding you want.

If you want vinyl, go with vinyl, you'll have to pressurewash it quite a bit throughout the year (or it looks like crap... Just saying) or you can use cement board, or you can use LP, or whatever you'd like.

It's your call. Either way, as long as you perform preventive maintenance (pressurewash, then recaulk, then paint every 3 years or 5 years) on the siding, they can all last you roughly 20-30 years without issue unless you failed to perform some preventive maintenance measures.

Is the shed right on or really close to the ground?
If you put vinyl siding over top you may still have a problem if the bottom edge of the OSB is left exposed.

10x10 storage shed? Why not take off the OSB one or two sheets at a time and replace with T-111? Or, prepainted exterior paneling?

If you're going to put this up on blocks, how were you planning to support the middle section. What is the shed floor? Joists or plywood or is there a floor?

Any pictures?
