I was wondering if anyone could tell me where is the best place to buy smooth aluminum siding for a fish house. Thanks for all your input.

Here's an odd solution, but...
Do you happen to know anyone in the priniting industry? The reason I ask is because a friend of mine built a fish house and sided it with discarded aluminum printing plates. I don't think you can just ask a printing company for old plates because they probably recycle them for $$$. But if you know anyone that works in a printing plant they might be able to hook you up. Probably not the most aesthetic solution but it would cost you next to nothing and it's effective. My friend worked in the plant so he got the OK from his manger to take some. Like I say, you'd probably need a connection but it worked for him!

I don't think that's what he wants. He's talking about the 4x8 sheets of smooth aluminum that fish houses are commonly sided with. I was wondering if Menards or Home Depot carry it. I know you can order it from Fishhouse supply.

I actually found a place in swanville nielsons hardware. They sell ice castle house but you can buy everything you need to build your own. I changed my mind im going to use the screwless camper siding. Thanks for the input.

Hey trout if you don't mind me asking how much did you have to pay for the aluminum camper siding? You have my e-mail if you want to shoot me a message. I bought the smooth .040" thick colored aluminum for $65 for a 4x10 sheet from Cliff Sasker at North Central Speedway in Brainerd. It does work well and you can get whatever color you want. Thanks.
