Looks good to me, can't wait to see it in action. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but won't you still have around 16' in length after you add your back end?

a couple more updated pics...

2nd end wall covered in plastic and stapled in place.



and the two additional ribs added, as well as a 2" PVC center beam. this was not included in the cost in my original post. however it is needed in an environment of snow and heavy rains. the plans i am following did not have this beam originally. his hoophouse caved in. he rescued it and added the center beam. we have real heavy thunderstorms and even some snow so it was best for me to add it...




i knotched the end of each end of the 2 inch PVC so it would rest nicely on each end wall. not to mention the end walls are about 1.5" taller due to the way the pvc bends when screwed to wood vs. over rebar stakes in the ground.


anyway, next is the top !!!

here is how i knotched, fit and screwed the center beam on the end walls.




then screwed from the inside out and used bailing wire to secure the center beam



then in covered all joints in tape in preparation for the top sheet of plastic.






finally, i added ropes to provide more support for the plastic and to help it flap in the wind less. hopefully this will add to the life of the plastic...

Thank You DOUBLEJJ and your COSTCO GREENHOUSE THREAD for the rope idea !!!




looking inside...



the ropes...




plastic top is next. probably won't get to it til next week.

got a race tonight, going out to grab a bite to eat also, the nfl kicks into full gear tomorrow and i have 3 fantasy teams...
