I think houses in your area are usually made of stone. Do you have any quarry's around there to get some? I think a computer case made of stone would be awesome! (just kidding). Aluminum is available here in the states at home improvement stores like Lowes and Home Depot. Do you have anything like that over there? You might ask at an auto body-shop. Plastic sheet is another alternative. I'd google for shops in your area that carry those types of materials.

machine shop would be help, if he were machining a case out of a block of aluminum. but that would be quite expensive.

Haha, true but they often have sheets laying around to to build shrouds for "machined blocks".
