Depends on the size, and materials used. And which specific tradesman you hire to do the labor. Seeking recycled materials as much as possible can reduce costs, and if you have/gain knowledge about construction methods and do some of the work yourself you could save money. Seeking advice about legislative practices/laws, you may also be able to seek the best tradespeople. For example, in my country , if you hire an unlicensed builder to do labor for you, you don't legally have to pay them (i think it may depend whether it complies to council regulations or not- can't remember) so you could potentially get a free job done if you play it smart. A large outdoor shed (concrete base with corrugated iron walls and roofs plus steel support beams, can cost many thousands of dollars for a couple meters extension on an existing shed. A sliding door on the shed costs more, and depending on the contractors, your location could cost extra (depending on how far they have to transport their equipment).
