    Hey all you MN folks - I'm looking for some galvanized corregated panels. I didn't really think that it was going to be this hard to find, but it's proving to be a bit daunting, even here in the Cities. Any recommendations that are at least somewhat close to the Cities? I'm thinking 4 panels of 8x2.5...

    thanks all -

    Are you talking the metal stuff for roofing/siding? If so you have to order the heavy duty stuff at Home Depot. We got the flimsy stuff there in stock and wish we'd ordered the thicker.

    Farm type stores (feedstores, that sort of thing) should either carry 'em, or be able to order them for you. In some areas large hardware stores will also carry or special-order them (ask the manager, not some dumb kid on the floor [​IMG]), but not everywhere.

    Good luck, have fun,

    aslo, local hardware stores should be able to get them and you could g2 them and order it for wholesale price.

    Consider Craig's List or Free Cycle. We see it pretty often here and it has character.
