I Made A Hoophouse

It’s been a while since the last post here, but this is fun enough to share.  I recently built a 14 x 60 ft hoop house for tomatoes and dahlias.  This is my first year trying either one of them for selling at market, and I’m hoping to bring in vast amounts of money to my little business.

I’ll be adding a few photos showing how I built it, but it’s called a Hanley hoop house and you can get a lot more details than I supply by downloading the PDF file at Hanley House.

See my construction photos here.

    Ps. With such great pdf, why did you decide to use pvc?

  3. Hey, Dub, you’re welcome – glad it was helpful. I went with PVC because it’s a lot cheaper and I didn’t have to make a bender. The PVC pipe curves itself into shape as you place it over the rebar ends. The 24 foot steel pieces that the Hanleys used would definitely be superior and would make a bigger house.
