Finally got the siding on. It's steel roofing form the Home Depot and I was surprised how inexpensive it is. It was $2.50 a linear ft. It's ironic that I used wall material on the dome and roofing on the sides. wink
And for the wise guys... No, it's a temporary tarp due to rain. Not a roll off roof! smile
I couldn't find a door that I wanted to cut down so I'm building my own prehung.

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Hi Bob
I like the round base unit that you built. While having a square base, allows for some extra interior room, the corners have to be sloped in order to prevent rain/snow from accumulating.
As for the wise guys... 8)

Looks good Bob! winkI made my own door also. I used door skins fron home depot and shaped the framework of the door with an electric door planer. it turned out pretty good! 8)
