    Can anyone tell me what width and length corrugated sheet metal came in during the 1930's, 1940"s?

    I have discovered several different widths and lengths but cannot find out which ones are applicable to my time period. 3ft wide by 6,8,10,12ft long. 26 inches wide by 6 ft long. 35" wide by 6 ft long.
    Then there is the issue of ripple iron sheet for siding and 10/3 for the roof. When did 8/3 and 10/3 become common in roof use?

    Paper Creek Models makes the best roof materail I've ever seen. They have corrugated metal roofing in three different phases of rust. They are in the correct length and width. You should check out there web site.

    Tar paper roofing and wood walls...but no real info on corrugated metal beyond saying that they "do it". :confused:

    One of our members makes his own, and his techniques are well described in the scratch building section of this forum. Might be worth a look.

    They make good roofing material but, what are the prices like? Do you know of any other company/store that provides good materials for a reasonable price. I have been using scraps from when my roofing was done as my material there's a bit left, so i'm looking to find places that are selling them for a reasonable amount.
