    Quote for the siding/trim molding has come in at about $800. All the pieces will be pre cut including a custom bent piece for the rear over hang, a continuous roll aluminum roof. I've sent an inquiry to another company for a second quote for comparison. This will put the project something over $3,000 depending on what the interior finish cost (cushions/window treatment).

    Got the second quote from Steve at Hemet Valley RV Siding and Storage located in California. Steve's quote came in 10% under Bestway but shipping charges swayed my decision in favor of Bestway.

    Be sure to check out Steve's blog page, some great information on materials.

    I concur.

    There should be a Nobel Prize or something awaiting you at the completion.

    Most of the skin is on now. Spent the weekend finishing the wiring and installing lights then finishing the insulation on the roof. After the foam pieces were placed between roof framing I built up the center with fiberglass insulation. I pulled the fiberglass apart towards the edges to taper it out. This is to create a dome so water won't pool on the roof. To attach the roof aluminum I place a sheet of particle board on top, weighted to flatten it so it wouldn't buckle while being stapled. When the particle board is remove the sheet will dome up. Filler framing will need to be placed around the vent hole to the level of the sheet metal.

    A blanket is used between sheet metal and particle board to allow sliding it around, starting on one side at the front, then the other side, then moving to the back.
