I'm building a new box stand. I'm contemplating on using plastic sheets vs plywood to skin it out. Do you think the plastic will be a lot hotter during early season vs plywood sides?

Most plastice blinds are hotter than wood ones even in the winter. The plastic blinds I have used also deteriorated quicker over the years.

Use hardie cement fiber panel. Paint it and you are done. A little expensive but well worth it. I drill a couple of holes in one of my walls at the top and cover with vent for ventilation.

I have a quad pod that was "tarp covered" when I bought it. The following year I ditched the tarp and covered it with vinyl siding from Lowes. been like that for about 8 years now.
