    Cleo - time is short, easier for me to order a skid of a hundred from Arlyn at Dadant, it's done, and I can move on to other projects.

    Roland... I was just kidding after reading your post about ..... " if you are lazy you could order from Dadant." My comment was meant to be in that same vein,... get someone else to do it for you. Bribe them with a little with honey if you have to.

    Advantech is a brand name, and its different than normal OSB. Apparently Advantech is manufactured with more resin compared to standard OSB. There is a dealer locator here:

    Call ahead first. I had several dealers here in the area and stopped in on the way home from work. I was pretty much told that the have it in a warehouse in Washington and can get me a ‘load’ in a few days. I only wanted to try a piece or two but you guys may be able to take more.

    Never did get my hands on any.

    I've built them with both, aluminum and galvanized. The Alum is easy to cut, I just score it and bend it to break, them tap fitted it around each lid with a hammer . Not hard at all.Galvanizing has a bad memory makes bending alot harder..
