    It could get pretty expensive....The cost of building materials has been going up and up!

    First of all you'll need a slab and cement footings, and I would not scrimp here. Make it at least 16ft X 20 Ft.

    Next: I'd suggest cinder block walls filled with sand or concrete, then fir out the inside with 2x4's or better 2x6's and lots of insulation. Buy pre-fab trusses or frame your own roof and insulate heavily.

    I have no idea how much this would cost but it could easily top $5,000.00

    Then add all the extras...
    Wiring
    AC and heating
    Nice interior panneling and "soft walls"
    Carpet & drop ceiling
    Another $5,000.00

    This is essentially what I did, but it is inside of the Garage. Home Depot will love you!

    Good Luck;

    Question

    Do you have an existing stucture out there or are you building that too?
    The size of the structure will determine what you can do to finish off the inside.
