I didn't see any posts about this, so here you go. I found these plans just yesterday and I'm very impressed with the quality, forethought, and detail put into this ebook. It is a set of plans to build a complete high tunnel hoop house using 2" HDPE pipe. I've looked at quite a few designs and plans recently and these are the best I found. I've not built mine yet, but when I'm ready, this is the set of plans I'll be using. They even document a couple of component failures and show you how they redesigned the plan to overcome.

There's one link for the tunnel plan PDF and another link for the end wall/door construction PDF. I found one small mistake in their materials list though. The plans call for the corner posts to be set in concrete and four anchor bolts that are used to secure 2"X2" angle iron for the end wall framing. The materials list does not seem to list the anchor bolts, but they are clearly identified in the main text and with photos giving their dimensions. Other than that, I think this is one of the highest quality houses that you could build. See if you agree.

(There is a link on each of the above pages for each PDF file which you will find on the right side underneath the photo of the hoop house.)

I hope you find this useful.

Excellent post MrPisky. Have printed the manuals out ready for when I relocate my system and have the space to build one (or more).

I did the mini tunnel version that they have on another portion of their website and am happy with them. They don't have the split vent like this greenhouse plan but I'm not really sold on this anyway. I also noticed when I looked at this greenhouse a while back, that some people were using fence rail instead of PVC for the hoops as a more durable option.

This is during construction before the addition of the hoops - two are running as bucket gardens and two as wicking beds.

very good thanks. I was looking at similar idea for shadehouse from the earthgraden website. Maybe a combination of both for the summer and winter is the go
