building a hoop house on the cheap...

buckster(z8)December 20, 2008


I want to build a hoop house on the cheap.

I'm mainly looking for where to get cheap metal hoops or a way to make my own and where I can buy the plastic cheap.

Thanks a ton for the help, I kind of want to expanded it over time and make it big.

Thanks a ton,

If you can find some old trampoline frames for free, there you go.

Here is a link to a place that sells hoop benders. You make them out of chain link fence rail.
