    Ok Ya'll,here is a lil trade secret. Look for a local metal building supplier. I promise you will find a few. Go to see them,Dont call. They will have what we call cover sheets. They are just what the name implies. Everytime I buy sheetmetal,I get 2 or 3 cover sheets. Yes they will have a few scratches, but You will save a ton of cash. Also,ask them about orders that people did not pick up.I promise they will have some. My coop is on that thread that is linked here.I built it out of sheets that a guy ordered & never picked up.I got them at wholesale cost. You can paint R~panels too. A real easy way to cut them is with a skill saw. Simply turn your blade around backwards & it will cut right thru. PLEASE WEAR SAFTY GLASSES. Take my word for it!
