Some useful notes:

Use treated wood, or wood suitable for outside use.

Where only the total amounts are given, try to purchase in lengths as long as possible to minimize wastage.

When cutting the frame members, cut the longest members first, then cut the shorter pieces from the off-cuts to avoid wastage.

The total amounts do allow for a bit of wastage.

For this project you will need...

9 of 4ft x 8ft (1200mm x 2400mm) sheets 3/4" (19mm) thick.

1 1/2 x 9 1/2" (240mm x 45mm) wood:
32ft (10 meters) for the curved decorative braces. This is optional but does look good.

4" x 4" (100mm x 100mm) wood:
2 lengths at 81 1/2" (2040mm) long.

1 1/2" x 3 1/2" (90mm x 45mm) wood:
410ft (123 meters)

3/4" x 6" (150mm x 19mm) boards:
48 lengths at 96" (2400mm)

Acrylic sheet (plastic glass) 3mm (1/8") thick:
4 pieces @ 8" x 12" (200mm x 300mm), 4 pieces @ 7" x 8" (175mm x 200mm).

some adhesive clear sealant for the windows,

3 of 6" (150mm) T-hinges for the door,
2 of 3 1/2" (90mm) butt hinges for the window,
a latch for the door,
a latch for the window,
around 7 lb (3 kg) of 4" (100mm) flathead galvanized nails,
