By the way,I didn't know you had an Amish community in Maine where a bouts? - news to me, thx for that.

In Maryland we have the nearby Amish and Mennonite communities serving northern counties of MD and Lancaster/ Hanover areas of Pennsylvania. Living close to the Mason-Dixon line provides us easy access to the agricultural and yummy home-made comfort foods of these communities. never had a better more tender tasty steak than that from my local Menenite butcher - we now address each other by name I go so frequently to their THURS - SAT. only market.
There are Amish settlements in Smyrna, Easton, and Unity that I know of. Some folks from Smyrna I have heard, are in the process of setting up another community in Hodgdon, but I don't know if that is a done deal yet.

There is a Amish metal roofing dealer in Smyrna that people travel far and wide to do business with.

Hill View Mini-barns in Etna is run by either Amish or Mennonite folks. I have a storage building made by them. They have great service. I did not ask which church they belong to.

Anyone looking for metal roofing material near Central Maine should check prices at Lakeview Lumber in China before driving up to Smyrna.

As far as cedar shingle roof??? Not at all practical, financially or otherwise. Some company now makes metal roofing that looks like wood shingles though!

I had my metal roof installed by the Amish from Smyrna. They had the best quote and they were speedy.
