I made my own out of 4 garage doors that I had the local garage door replacement company deliver for a few quid more than they would get for scrap. Cut out a door add a pitched roof - done
I don't do rain or threat there of. dry rider only with no shame.

Here you are then - flower basket, wire gecko and festoon lighting all completely optional.
Bolt 4 -7 foot doors together add a 12mm ply gable end front and back- run a length of 2x3 across those at the point lay 2 pieces of 8x4 OSB board each side for the roof overhanging at the sides and door end, sides provide for gutter and door end a rain canopy add a door and paint whatever colour - Nato green for me. I dont keep my bike there just normal junk.   
this stuff for the roof on top of the osb http://www.varicoltd.com
You can see the two styles of garage door used. The doors make for a much stronger structure than the thin tin sheds you can buy.
You could use larger double garage doors at the side for a 10foot by 7 foot shed

That's spot on fella! :thumbup
I think this might a route to go down, you've even put an old front door to good use. OSB- is that the stuff that turns to shredded wheat if it gets wet?

Correct on the door - although its an internal one, yes OSB thats the stuff but its come along way since then, you could use ply but it costs more and its only a support for the corrugated bitumen board, or you could use normal shed roofing felt which is what I had on there to start but it weathered on the egdes and magpies seemed to take umbridge with it and then the wind got under it, so I replaced with the bitumen sheet which are much better.
