Scrounger's hoop house.
I am set to start putting a hoop house together and also maybe a shade house....maybe an easily convertible thing. I am flexible. Design depends on what I can scrounge up or have to buy.
The space is about 30"x100' with room to get around that.
20'x25" wide by 60' long with roll up sides and stud wall ends would be best for the hoop house. Can PVC be use for a permanent structure of this width? What diameter, how to make it last...paint it? Maybe I can drive galvanized pipe for my base and use PVC? The arc would be a little over 38 feet for a 25' wide x 12' high tunnel, So two sticks of 20' pvc would do it. about $25 per hoop for 2" white PVC.
Wind is an issue, snow is not.
