building a box

hey, new to the forums. i was thinking about building a box in my backyard, but how thick should i have the piece of polycarbonate that goes over the plywood? i was thinking of making it about 8 feet long and about 1.5 feet wide, and probably 2 feet tall. has anyone built one of these?

8 feet is too short. I built one 15 feet and you get across it surprisingly quick. 1/4 is what I have.
