I think I agree with your contractor. That's a lot of money for the kit, and I'm no fan of OSB for anything that needs to stand up to weather. Also, the big doors on the end are a liability, just another big hole you have to deal with. It's hard to believe that a stick built building would be more expensive, we're talking a very simple structure here. Framing something like this isn't that difficult, and you'll have a much better product when you're done. I notice it doesn't even include the roofing shingles in that price!
