Sheet Metal Work

Sheet metal novice here.
I am making a round bird house and decided to put a conical metal roof on it. I made a pattern and cut the roof out of 22 ga. steel. Now I have realized that there is no way to roll it to shape by hand. Am I going to have to take it to a sheet metal shop??? Notice that the left side has a tab to overlap. I am including a photo of the flat piece.

You should be able to pull it together. You may have to kind of form it over the edge of your workbench to help the outside diameter to come together. Use the photo that Larry sent back to get an idea of what the sections will look like.
