Question Greenhouse

I would like to take advantage of a southeastern facing part of my home and attach a leanto green house to it to grow vegetables year round. It would be approximately 10'L X 8'W X 7'H. I could build it myself and if I did I'd want the frame to be aluminum and prefer a glass shell but I'd want the facing roof edge to be oblique or rounded so I guess I'm limited to polycarb for rounded. The problem with building myself is I have no idea where to get the materials. I've seen businesses that provide custom kits but which ones are reputable?

Any insight much appreciated.

Order a pre-fab kit and set it up yourself. The multi layer plastic glazing is more energy efficient but are fugly in my opinion and you can't see through them as well especially after a few years. Glass looks better, is more expensive and can have a longer life and is a lot better if you want to see through it.
