I couldn't find cedar shakes locally. For the front I used pine fence shakes from Lowes. They cost $1.56 each. For the sides I used Smartside 38 series primed engineered treated wood siding panel. They cost $32/panel. I had to buy two panels. On the back I used 1/2 plywood. I made the roof 76x46. All the materials were purchased from Lowes except the shingles. I used GAF Timberline HD Barkwood shingles.
