Default Building all-lam/weatherproof

Does anyone have experience with custom weatherproof guitars? I know the way-to-go is rainsong or similar carbon fiber guitars, but that's not in my budget and I prefer to build my own instruments.

I'm looking for something I can transport/leave in my car in the winters of Canada without concerns of cracking the second I walk out into the cold. I could go buy a cheap all-laminate guitar, but that also feels like cheating.

Laminate sides (and backs) I see have been done, and a 5+piece neck gives stability. The only remaining thing is also the most finicky, a laminate top. I have carbon/fiberglass experience, but I don't imagine I have enough to make a guitar top unless I buy 1/2mm carbon sheet.
