14’ Hoophouse High Tunnel
Our 14′ wide “caterpillar tunnel” combines affordability with easy mobility. This hoophouse can be installed for roughly half the cost of Gothic hoophouses, while still providing a great deal of flexibility for season extension and year-round production.
Starter Build — Our lead builder will start your install with you and set up the build for you to complete, or direct your workforce in installing the hoop. We bring specialized tools to pound and laser-level your groundposts and get your project off the ground. We also support you with detailed videos of each step of the build.
Community Build — We’ll work with your CSA membership, neighbors and friends in an old-style barn raising type event.
Full Installation — We can build your hoophouse for you. We usually finish these in one day!
Affordable: The 14’ high tunnel can be installed for roughly half the cost of Gothic hoophouses, while adding valuable mobility.
New valuable features: every structure includes groundcloth weed barrier and poly baseboards
Hyper-mobile: 2 people can relocate 2,000 sf of hoophouse in 1 hour, allowing new sophisticated rotations to maximize value
Functionally half the width of our 30′ Gothic structure: 14′ width still allows (4) 30″ beds with generous pathways
Buttons up in the winter: Wire-lock channel in the baseboards let’s you secure the poly cover in wind and harsh weather conditions. Every bow has a crossbrace, to protect your structure from snow and wind.
Ready for your growing needs: cross braces provide snow load protection and can be used for irrigation and trellising functions
