Exterior sheeting help

I have a green house I want to frame in the ends. If you do the typical width times height it seems to be way to much compaired to what I removed when I purchased and moved it.

It measures 22 feet wide and at the highest point it is 10 feet. It is in the shape of a half circle. I get 220 square feet for one end. That seems to be alot of waste. Is there an easier and less expensive way to figure it?.

The area of a circle is 3.14x the radius squared, so 11 squared is 121 x 3.14 = 380 square feet. But you only have half of a circle so half of the 380 would be about 190 square feet, so your figure of 220 square feet isn't too far off, considering the wood you will be buying will be square and not round as desired.
