Wood is usually my first choice.

Sorry, I just don't know what you would use.

Framing lumber.
Order 4 12' treated 2x4's
40 2x4x16 #2 pine
12 2x6x14 " "
14 4x8x7/16" osb
Concrete, roofing, nails, trim, door, window, padlock, paint, misc.
Pour concrete. Build shed. Roof.
Enjoy!
(disclaimer: this may be too much lumber, or not enough, depending on size of shed, etc.)

well, if he limits himself to the 8' x 10' pad that one yard of concrete (in the buggy) will fill to 4"... then 4 or 5 10' 2x4's will be enough (use the extra for bracing) to form up that pad. Lets solve one problem at a time.

maybe you should buy a measuring tape, square, level, twine, line level, shovel, rake, bull float, finish trowels... yeah, you better build that shed soon with all those tools sitting out in the yard.

Douglas fir. Treated lumber for anything on the floor/ground.

Is OSB considered framing lumber? Or sheathing?

I was being facetious...while regarding the OPs question. He asked only about the frame.

Oh! I hope I didn't confuse him too much!
