Have you measured the two diagonals? Left front to right rear corner and right front to left rear corner. The ideal is to get those as close to equal as possible, resulting in a square structure. Square is easier to work with than un-square.
We all have different ways of looking at things. Myself, I think 1/4" in eleven feet is a large error. When you build on top of errors my experience has been that you are forever having to deal with this and it can affect other materials used for sides, top, etc.

So as I grew up I realized everything will not come out perfect. As an old guy I now adjust in the field when things don't go just right.
