Yes, mine is metal. You'd have to price out the cost of the plywood/particle board vs the metal sheets. I buy the sheets in 4 X 12 lengths and I think it ended up being equivalent to wood. I built the whole thing for around $600.

I think you said you're somewhere where you get quite a bit of rain and humidity? If so, then I'd look for the galvalume steel for sure. Wood will rot in no time and you'll constanly be replacing sheets of plywood. I used pressure treated lumber for the posts and cross ties, to make it last. Besides, you have to paint wood and the sheets of metal come in all kinds of pretty colors!
