What would you advise as the best metal for a main housing structure that would be low maintenance and long life-span, in terms of corrosion?
The rusted surface you're discussing is called Corten. It is a pre-rusted panel, and is completely non-structural, so yes they are cosmetic and interchangeable (but somewhat expensive).
