Mr. Chickadee put out a Youtube video the other day about hand-made storm windows using single pane glass to make two windows with several inches of air space between them without needing to seal it up like a double pane window.

This 20 Gauge Clear Vinyl is a mid-weight, durable, flexible, and waterproof material. It is shatterproof, stain resistant and can withstand hot and cold temperatures. Use it to make storm windows, in tents and canopies, or to enclose and insulate screen porches, patios, greenhouses, and chicken coops. Sew vinyl to create pockets in suitcases and garment bags or in theater productions where a strong and clear material is needed. This versatile plastic is ideal for everyday household use and is a practical choice for all sorts of projects.
