    Just use 16 ‘ cattle panels then you can let your vining plants climb during the summer



  2. mystang 89 on September 17, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    How’s the PVC holding up? I heard that it becomes real brittle after a while in the sun and snaps.



  3. Allen Callender on September 17, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    The slip joints are easier to make by ripping the PVC on a table saw first and them cutting to length. Its safer too.



  4. Rhyme& Reason on September 17, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Lessons learned from my own build (6 years old and going strong):
    1) Grey electrical conduit is more resistant to UV and has a joint built in for connecting two fo them together.
    2) Don’t seam the PVC at the top of the curve – that is the highest stress point and is prone to failure… better to do 5′, 10′, 5′ – a little more cutting and joints but the joints are down where there is little bending stress.
    3) I bored holes in my 26 ridge beam and ran the PVC thru it – more work, but it supports 2,000 lbs of snow load in the winter.



  5. Brad Thompson on September 17, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    What was the door made out of? The 2x4x8?



  6. John Deggendorf on September 17, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    …think like a carpenter: rip (cut the long way) the slot on a length of pvc, THEN chop into short segments. Keep your fingers.



  7. Chris C on September 17, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    How is it holding up 3 years later with your wind and snow



  8. R. on September 17, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    lovely idea but that would cost 2 x the amount here in the UK. nice video tho



  9. david sellers on September 17, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    is your family also going to use the poop house? cause thats just weird…



  10. DIY Solar Homestead on September 17, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    I was looking for raised beds and you showed up. I like your green house. I started thinking that it could be extended the next year. Also I might put another 2X6 at the base so I could have a second canape for Michigan winters. I subscribed for more awesome ideas. Thank yo brother.



  11. John Deggendorf on September 17, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Excellent design.



  12. Andrew McIntyre on September 17, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    you could also just use a footlong piece of rebar for each pvc piece



  13. Harry Oxford on September 17, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    A wonderful video. I will build this using your video. How much plastic will I need. What length and width?



  14. Waseem Khundkar on September 17, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    what was the average internal temperature of the finished greenhouse during the winter. where im at, it gets pretty cold. so I was wondering what’s the difference between the outside temp and the inside temp. thanks.



  15. Strive4impact on September 17, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    I hope you keep making videos when you move to Iowa (saw that in another video). I’m looking forward to using this video to make a greenhouse for us in Idaho Springs (we are also in Colorado) this year. If you ever want an afternoon getaway from Denver, send me a message. Would love to buy you a beer or lunch or something.



  16. None ya Business on September 17, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Theres no way this was 150$. In canada we just bought 2x4s x 8 and they were 5.50 each. That doesn’t include clips, fasteners, plastic rolls in 50′ sections are $60 each. You guys need to get realistic about prices.



  17. gladtidings4all on September 17, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    To prevent a wind storm from blowing it away I would stick a piece of rebar inside at the end of those pvc to the ground inside at least 5 inches so that if a strong storm comes along it won’t be blown away. I would stick it at each corner and mid section. I like your idea of your hoop house.



  18. susanrsj on September 17, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Thank you !!! I have watched more videos then I can count. This is the first one that actually showed me how to build a door!!! I have 4 hoop houses and not one door…None of the other videos made sense to me. I love this! Your awesome!!!



  19. smokemywoodbine on September 17, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    I’m going to use this video for my bed time story



  20. Oppenheimer Ranch Project on September 17, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    One 50mph gust=Goodbye



  21. Quentin Smith on September 17, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    How did you do the plastic cover?



  22. Melek Ra’ on September 17, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    I have a question… did you rip the 2x4x8’s to get the door frames?



  23. Rea Shinn on September 17, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    24 would be the correct number.



  24. Fatz Treeboy on September 17, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    my dogs LOVE ur opening 🙂



  25. Larry Clewis on September 17, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Thank you for posting this video I have been trying to build a greenhouse for the last two years and could never find one that I truly like and can afford, I just wanted you to know that I built it and it turned out beautiful it is everything I needed thank you so much!



  26. Charlene Kociuba on September 17, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you. You make it look easy but I doubt I can do it. I would love to have one but hey, can’t always get everything you want. I hope you keep showing how to make things and maybe one day I’ll make something out of wood. Keep on keeping on and be safe.



  27. dantang65 on September 17, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    very nice



  28. Hope Crolius on September 17, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    We absolutely love this video. We are taking your shopping list to a big box store tomorrow. One thing we didn’t see in either this video or part II is how to stretch and secure the plastic. Well keep an eye out for it in cSe you make one. Thanks again! (My growing partner loves your crystal clear construction instructions, while I love to watch you brand yourself with your motto about simple living, get better and better with the YouTube thing, and generally succeed in marketing as well as homesteading.)



  29. Sky Jewels on September 17, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Is the plastic you use from amazon BPA free. A concern is leaching toxins into organic garden. Was unable to find any information on the type of plastic it is. Any ideas?



  30. Downeastwaves on September 17, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you!



  31. Steven Harvey on September 17, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Really like the design, I would like to build one as well. Have you ever thought about doing a follow up video on this, just to show how well it has held up over the years, and what you would do differently now vs. then. I live near Toronto, do you think this design would be sturdy enough to hold up against the weather here?



  32. david sellers on September 17, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    i use cheese to stabilize my poops



  33. becky karenson on September 17, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    i wonder how long it was before he regret using plastic "hoop stabilizers"



  34. Mateo Carlos on September 17, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Those plastic clamps will become brittle and break in time. Swap for the metal ones.



  35. Caveman ARK on September 17, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Great video but your cost estimates do not include greenhouse plastic costs which for me were over 100 dollars.



  36. Richard Di Lorenzo on September 17, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Some omissions IMO. You didn’t show putting up the PVC. How did that go? Screw in one bottom while the piece is standing in the air before screwing in one side at a time? Seems like it would be good to show in action. Second, not sure how you were able to cut out the notch on the 2" PVC pieces. Chop saw? That looks dangerous. How did you hold them in place while you cut the notch. How about putting the notched pieces onto the other PVC? Apparently the piece pulls open? How did you do that without breaking the pieces? Also, no problem with the PVC joint at the 10′ point coming lose or breaking? I like the concept, but as far as instructions and a thorough showing you could have been more helpful I think.



  37. Terry Wereb on September 17, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    It may add some expense, but, why not use 2×2 instead of ripping 2x4s?



  38. gladtidings4all on September 17, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I like the tall raised bed at the end of the video those ai want to see how it was done!



  39. chuy u later on September 17, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Cool Ass VIDEO!



  40. GalileonPrime on September 17, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Not grommets or pvc holders, they are actually pvc pipe straps. Also 4 straps per hoop equal 24, not 22.



  41. the on September 17, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    ARE THESE 1/2 BY 10 OR 1IN/10 YOU NEVER SAID THIS HOME DEPOT PVC ?



  42. TOM TOM on September 17, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Thank You



  43. Bryan Jensen on September 17, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    For my hoops I reinforced the joints with something (I’ve forgotten what, either wood or PVC) inside the tubes and coupling. This gave me a smooth curve at the joints instead of a point.



  44. Ansel Loves to Grow Organically on September 17, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Very good job!



  45. Outdoors Beyond Nature on September 17, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I purchased a greenhouse for less than $200.00 on Amazon, galvanized piping.



  46. sonyphotoguy on September 17, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Looks good, but did it survive the first storm? How is it today?
