Corrugated metal walls


I've been trying to find a good guide to building corrugated metal walls. I have an old structure in my back yard- concrete slab, four 4x4 posts, with a corrugated metal roof. It's approx 10'x12 with 12'ish roof. I want to wall it in with a combination of concrete blocks at the bottom and corrugated metal up to the roof to make it my workshop. I've researched masonry and can handle the blocks, but I'm unsure of framing and fastening the metal siding. I'd prefer to do it with minimal framing. Does anyone know of a good online guide or the like with building methods, preferably with pictures? I'm trying some folks at instructables.com too, but there is no instructable yet on this topic.
