Materials cost was a bit high.

Plexiglass was $120 a sheet (and I needed two 4'x8' sheets)
Lumber was on the pricey side too, but I was using NICE lumber which is pre-primed. That pre-primed is kind of a life-saver as it's winter, and it's kinda hard to do a good exterior paint job in the cold outdoors! I simply assembled the project, and it looked very finished because of the priming.

I'll add a coat of real paint once the weather is a little nicer.

Twin wall polycarbonate is less expensive, but also slightly less transparent, and I like the nice view through the window.

In total, my cost was about $500. The project certainly can be done cheaper than that, but I am pleased with the overall results.
