    I like that. How stiff is it? Do you use it on the roof sections also? How thick are the cells?

    It is used for the roof and the walls. It is stiff. It is a solid material that is lightweight and can be cut with a circular saw. The material comes in an assortment of sizes. I don't remember the mm grade we purchased. It has been a long time. LOL

    We designed our greenhouse to match the style of our home. The walls are set on two foot high walls with 2x4 studs ever two feet. Here is an inside shot (my favorite) showing the walls and base.

    This one will give you an idea of how the roof looks:

    You can just google "Lexan polycarbonate greenhouse material" and probably get several links to see the different types.

    That's awesome. Thanks for the information. It looks like you're going to need a second greenhouse soon. LOL
