Is it practical for a DIY builder on a tight budget to build their own high-R-value windows for use in a cold NE climate? Openable? Non-openable? With exterior storm windows? Using plastic sheet or film instead of, or in addition to, glass? Are single panes of low-e glass available? Is there such a thing as low-e plastic?
Thanks for any suggestions.
