I am currently in the process of building my daughter a playhouse from scratch. I need help with the windows. I found the Acrylic plastic(plexiglass) at ***** . However, I don't know if I can build a window frame or not. It is going to be 3 18x24 windows. Would it be easier to just buy storm windows and replace the glass with the plastic or build it on my own? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Personally I think building from scratch would be easier. You can cut grooves for the thickness of the plexi in the edges of the sash frame with a table saw and dado set or a router bit. The corner joints are many. Butt joints would be my last choice but half lap joints(for the glue area), or splined miter joints would work well.......Mark Hammond
