Do you have to worry about the oil canning effect with glueing the sides? I have to admit, I've been fashioning a lot of my build from your gallery. Our building styles align. I have been in touch with Adam at Alaska Copper. I think I'm beating their prices though through Everett Steel(closer too). Thanks for the advice. I'm still going to check into some of these shipping options and see if I can go with 5' goods and still save some money.

I was by Everett Steel today to check out the sheets of aluminum before committing. I was surprised at the feel of the .032 gauge. I'm thinking it would be appropriate for everything! Fact is, the .040 seemed a little heavy for working around my curves(tightest being 12" radius at the beginning). With a backing of 12" centers on my framing and two layers(glued) of 1/8" luan, I can't see where the .040 would be necessary. I would appreciate your input.
