Finally another update......got the ceiling/wiring/roof skin done. Baltic birch 1/8" ply inside and out with insulation too.
I was on the fence about the roof skin, leaning toward PMF. Then I found a local source for aluminum skin at a decent price so I decided to go for it. Happy with the choice.
Also bought a Maxxfan/vent. And ordered my windows.....dang this is getting spendy! Next up is getting my doors built and fitted.
Goal is to have it ready by the end of July.

Really looking good. Your decision to go with aluminum over PMF was a good one you'll never regret. Plus, it just looks fantastic!

Regarding the "spendy" part... you ain't seen nothing yet!

Keep up the good work!
