I've used Suntuf on a shed . You attach it in a similar fashion to sheet metal roofing.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 10 Small Structures That Whisper of Wonder
Like a Fay Jones chapel, this screened sleeping space celebrates its simple, wood-frame structure while it nestles itself in the woods. What a nice place to sleep in the outdoors when weather permits.
Show where the Scoutmaster sleeps. For a slightly more luxurious than usual take on sleeping in the great outdoors, I love the idea of constructing a screened shelter just steps from the backdoor. You can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, minus the bugs and tent setup drama.
11. Consider a sleeping shed instead. Architect Bob Swinburne took the sleeping porch to a whole new level, creating a sleeping cabin perched among the ferns on his Vermont property. The cabin has a polycarbonate roof that offers a view of the stars and moon. I think Henry David Thoreau would approve. Plans for the shed are available on Swinburne’s website.
