With the weather here in Northern Idaho, and specifically, the temperature to change drastically starting tomorrow - well - I got this done just in time... BACKGROUND: I moved here and purchased the property about 2 years ago from a Californian refugee that built the house. It's a nice, solid little house but he failed to install a wood stove even though the property is covered in Lodge Pole pines that have to come down to protect the other trees (blue spruce, white/red fir and etc.) and, in general, to keep from making a mess because they don't have a good root system...but they make good firewood. So, I dished out the bucks and finally got my woodstove installed this Spring but I had no place to store wood. My intent is to build another garage (next Spring) which will have 12 foot lean-too for wood storage and etc. but what to do now? So, not wanting to spend a lot of money, I decided to try one of these hoop houses as a temporary measure and I would also gain experience for building the wife's Green House in the Spring. I am pretty please with the results but there are a few mistakes and things I will do differently next time yet this was a learning experience...but we'll see how it handles a winter here... Just a few details... it is 10W' x 16L' and 7H', I used 3/4" Schedule 80 (2 ea.10' sections to form a hoop, didn't glue them either), base is 2" x 6" treated wood, 3" and 4"carriage bolts, didn't see the sense in putting a real door on it since it's temporary... I did cut a few corners and used odds and ends 2"x4" whenever I could, the front and back plastic are simple 6mil plastic and not the good greenhouse stuff, things like that... Tips: Lock Channel and Wiggle wire (also called Spring wire) are your friends. Use them. While the channel (aluminum) is not exactly cheap (but last forever) they do the job excellent and save a ton of time and effort and makes replacement of plastic really easy. Snap Clamps also are extremely useful and be aware there are 2-3 different types depending on strength and if they are removable or permanent. Get your electric sander out and round the corners on your 2"x4" your plastic will thank you.
