Well, trying to enclose our basement entrance on the cheap. I don't want to sound cheap, fact is we don't have much money to spend on it.
I built the roof a couple of months ago. Used 5 V tin from Lowes. Insulated the attic part and used recycled 1/2" plywood for ceiling material.
Now we want to enclose the sides. One side faces due South. I would like this side to have 2 storm windows. The other side I would like to use something like Lexan, or another polycarbonate. There are 2 rough openings per side. They are 42 inches square.
We are using our old storm door from the front of the house for the door on this stairwell enclosure.
Want to start seeds for the garden on shelves along the storm windows on the South side. Want to limit heat loss on the North side so the poly panels came to mind.
Would like to hear your opinions, etc.
