14’ High Tunnel

Our 14′ wide “caterpillar tunnel” combines affordability with easy mobility. This hoophouse can be built as a stand-alone stationary structure, complete with doors and roll up sides. But the real value of the SideStep hoophouse comes alive with the mobile/modular system, stepping sideways in sections onto multiple sets of ground posts.

  • 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

  • Ready for your growing needs: cross braces provide snow load protection and can be used for irrigation and trellising functions
