Walls - I used a thin, 7/16 white double aluminum panel, that has plastic honeycomb between the panels.  Because I needed ~1" walls, I used construction adhesive to glue two pieces together, double the strength, and it is light and strong.  I bought them from a place in Cumming, GA and if you are still in limbo, let me know and I can dig their contact out.

Interior roof - I looked a lot of options, and my wife really hated the carpet the was up their between the ceiling joists.  We also wanted to do flush mounted LED's on a dimmer so I had to drop the roof about 3/4" to accomidate the lights and wires.  Solution, I ran a 1/1 all the way around each roofing section, and used self tapping scres to secure them into the ceiling joists on all four sides.  That dropped my ceiling down by 3/4".  I then drilled out a hole through each ceiling joist along the the 1x1 on each side of the ceiling joist, so I had a "clean through" hole, to pass wires so I could hook all the the ciling LED's together.  I then used "bead board", stained and drilled out for the lights, and screwed them up to the wooden 1x1s around each section.  We are thrilled with the results of the wood roof and the LEDs.  A bit of work, but when someone comes on board, they always metion how they love the ceiling.

WALLS
And on the walls after much searching, I am leaning toward this option, which is all one piece, super lightweight, WATERPROOF, and intended to stand up against UV exposure:
 
 
Should also be easy to cut for the window openings. I will install additional four additional 1" square extrusions to support the roof and take the load off the walls.

Did you end up using this for your walls and were you happy with the end result.  We are trying to figure out something to replace the walls with as well and I saw this but wasn't sure if it was rigid/strong enough to be used for walls.
