Building free standing structure


I want to build a free standing shed/building under a set of bleachers for our baseball team. It doesnt have to be pretty on outside. Just want it to be inexpensive and sturdy. Most interested in how to lay floor, walls, and ceiling. Thanks!

That's going to have to be a whole lot bigger then your now thinking to fit 30 people.
May also have to have 2 exits and out opening 36" doors.

If you have no idea on how to build this concider picing yourself up a book or two on garage and shed building.
Any chance the wood shop at the school could build it?

I understand what you saying, but the bleachers are quite big and could structure the size we are talking. It would be a lot like a garage.

My Idea is this: Cinder block type walls with cheap carpet on the floor. Big enough for 25 Small Cubbies/Lockers, some couches and tables.

as brock asked, "where are you located?" location determines many factors in how your can build

Sorry not the most construction literate person here. I just want it to be on its own.

And we are located in Iowa and this would be built over a gravel area.

Pole barn would be the cheapest way to go in Iowa. I'm sure you guys could build it yourselves. Those things usually run about $8 / sq ft. Erected.
