Here is how 'Dave D' made his corrugated iron roofing,
with aluminum sheets.

THANK YOU for posting this,
I gotta get down to Michael's and find some of this material.

I have a Bran Line Quonset hut kit,
that I didn't like the siding it came with one bit.

I found some other plastic corrugated siding,
but it needs to be at a slight arc,
and I'd never figured out how I was going to do that.

With this technique,
I can bent it gently as the real life stuff is placed.

If you want to take another view of doing the roof,
you could make it a peaked design and use "raised seam roofing". 

You could use B I S material in aluminum or real copper.


Taking a clerestory roof design you could cut that into the peak,
using Grandt Line attic windows, or their 52 x 33 sliders.
 
Which would supply lighting inside,
and a whole lot of character to the standard structure.

Open your mind to other options,
other than what came in the box.
