Strong - Double-gusseted cross-braces support every interior bow and span 8' across the 16'-wide structure.  While creating a strong house for our northern climates, these braces also integrate with our overhead irrigation and plant trellising system, creating a quick and easy way to train tomatoes, cucumbers, and other vining crops.

Rugged - Galvanized tubing and strong woven poly endwall and roll-up panels are built to withstand northern wind and snow.

Walkable side-wall height - The 6' side-wall height provides a complete perimeter walk area and easy access to the complete growing footprint.

Roll-up sides - with baffled ends to keep heat during the winter

Easy to upgrade with Nifty's automatic louver vents and automatic roll-up side system
