A hoop house is generally defined as a simple greenhouse and is commonly used for season-extension, allowing crops to thrive and be cultivated well after their normal growing season. It is generally constructed using basic materials such as pvc pipe reinforced with rebar for the frame and a plastic sheet to cover the structure.
Step 1: Supplies
First figure out the dimensions of the greenhouse you are constructing. A hoop house can vary in size depending on your needs. The one we are working with in this description is approximately 13' long x 10' wide x 6' tall.
What you will need:
*PVC pipe (in our case we used 3/4" pipe)
*PVC T-fittings( you may need 2 or 3)
*Plastic greenhouse liner
*Wooden planks(the length and width of your greenhouse)
*Optional: Wood( if you choose to build door frames)
