John, sounds like fun. If you want to pursue "Irish" or octave mandolin tuning you'll find that heavier gauge strings are pretty much a necessity. Try to find a GHS Octave Mandolin set, they ought to work pretty well, and they'll give you 2 sets for the price of one. Have you measured to set the bridge position yet? That could be the cause of some of your intonation problems. Also the head needs to be fairly taut to give good results. Have fun.
