Got the other side of post all set, although I forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures.

We are going to try and beat the rain and get the hoops up tomorrow.

I will see how much we get done tomorrow, it is raining a little right now and they are saying it's going to rain all day tomorrow.

The hoops went up really easy, we had 1 person on each side of the hoop, one would lift one side onto the pole (careful not to tip the hoop over since they are top heavy) then when one side was on, the other side was lifted into place, it took the longest getting the hoops put together, but we got pretty streamed lined at it and it only took us about 2 1/2 hours to get them all up.

Been able to get some work in, I just realized that I haven't updated this thread in a long time, a lot has been added since the last pictures. We got one end wall finished, we started on the other wall but we found out that the company we ordered this high tunnel from shorted us around 30 L brackets :(, We emailed the company and haven't heard back yet, hoping to hear something on Tuesday, if not we will call them.

Never heard of a hoop hose?   :poke:   :rolling:

 

All jokes aside, I say go for it, they are pretty easy to build.
