    Where can I get cheap small shed or playhouse windows ? I've tried craigslist, lowes and homedepot so far and the cheapest I've found was $65 for 23 inch. What type of window would be the lightest (weight wise) ?

    I've found windows at flea markets and garage sales for next to nothing. Also try freecycle.

    I'm cheap. I put hardware cloth on the outside of the openings, and buy some Plexiglas cut to the size of the window openings. Only put 'em in during winter, take the panels down in good weather (most of the year).

    A lot of people go to reuse stores or the Habitat for Humanity stores.

    I love those places.
