crestliner16, Hey, if you have the time and have a mobile home park near you, you might ask if they have any homes that are going to be removed or demolished. Years ago, my Dad and I took the siding off of 2 homes in a local park, then they just crushed and hauled the rest to the landfill. We built 2 storage sheds that still stand and a 8X12 perm that we sold, that now resides in the Backus area. I seen it 2 years ago and it looked pretty good for it's age. A little 'sweat equity' and a little time paid off. The scrap alum market is tanked so maybe offer $20 or so and you'll have a great deal, maybe more metal than you need so you could sell some and recover your cash investment! Good luck! Phred52

Fish House Supply has the .024 smooth aluminum for $45.00 per sheet.. $1.40 sq ft. Not sure what you think a decent price is??

I have seen some people use a wood panel for the outside, anyone know how long that lasts?

Depends on how much time you put into it painting each year or so to keep it looking good. I would not go with any type of wood siding unless that is all you have at the time. Too much work to keep it looking nice and you will eventually have to replace it just like on your home. Just my $0.02 worth.

probably get something at menards, home depot, or the likes that might work.

The folks that put up sheds like Morton bldgs etc. usually transport their tin with a sheet of off-color stuff over the good pieces. You might be able to get a builder in your area to save you that stuff.

I am looking at spray foaming the house and then putting a polyurethane coat over that to seal it. It been used for years on large flat roof. It being used on concrete and wood, marine surfaces, truck bedliners, and comes in many colors. It stays flexable and contains recycled rubber granules. It weights 10 lbs per gallon and cost is about $120 gallon, so its spendy. It would work on the floor inside the house also.
