is it possible to build a green house outa plexiglass, was thinkin 8x12
Its possible, but unless you can get it free its going to cost a LOT!
Possible but not very practical. Plexiglass is quite expensive when compared to other alternatives. Plexiglass is also pretty brittle and would break easily.
Some of the box stores carry polycarbonate sheet goods that are quite reasonable compared to other materials. The twin walled stuff that looks a little like cardboard would work pretty well too.
Personally I'd go with a double layer of greenhouse plastic sheeting with air inflation between layers. Low cost and air insulation.
I have a samll 6'x8' greenhouse I bought from Harbor Freight it works great and it was reasonably priced too about $110.00. It has 3 metal shelves on each side and its easy to heat during the winter. I would check into the cost of building one out of plexiglass as it alone is very expensive and breaks easy. Good luck

They carry corrigated plastic (which is normal greenhouse stuff.) not TOO expensive.
they seem to have quite a bit of stuff. that $7 per linear foot crate charge could add up fast though...geesh.
pretty kool, thanx. love to build my own stuff.
