22.5’ Gothic Hoophouses
A leaner, tighter package than the 30’ Gothic, our 22.5’ wide structure brings all the strength and durability of our wider hoophouse with a shorter list of standard features to fit your budget.
Strong - Triple gusseted cross-braces span every interior bow and stretch 14.5’ across the 22.5’ 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 - Our Gatorshield galvanized tubing and strong woven poly end-wall and rollup panels are built to last.
Grower-friendly - The 6’ side-wall height provides complete perimeter walk area and easy access to the complete growing footprint.
Accessible - Our end-wall design incorporates a hinged door for daily and entry and two large equipment access panels that give you cost effective and easily-winterized doorways.
Roll-up sides - with baffled ends to keep heat in during the winter months

Single-layer poly cover with IRAC and diffusion properties
double purpose end wall configuration that maximizes utility by placing year-round “people access” at the main entry end and two 8’x’8’ equipment access doors at both ends
1.5” square steel assemblies, laid out to accommodate ventilation and door openings
11-mil woven end-wall covers with two velcro door openings (8’x8’)

Double-layer inflated poly cover: Add another layer of plastic, inflated by our low-voltage, low-energy use inflation fan, to insulate your hoophouse for winter production - $250 + 3.75 per linear foot
Automated side ventilation: Upgrade roll-up side curtains to automated/motorized (both sides, includes thermostatic control) - $950
Note: This is a very simple and affordable control system with mechanical temperature control. Far more sophisticated low voltage control systems including programmable and/or remote access features are available (costing up to thousands of dollars) and can be added to our side curtain motors at any time.
Roll-up end walls: Increase end-wall access with wide roll-up panels - 8’ high x 22’ wide open end-wall access. Includes removable end-wall framing posts when accessing full unobstructed width, and out 5:1 geared roll-up crank for easy open and close operation. Fully installed.
Upgrade one end - $650
Upgrade both ends for easy pass-through - $1100
Solar power upgrade: Complete 200W / 12V solar package: Upgrade the standard build to include (2) 100W 12V solar panels with (2) deep cycle batteries and charge controller/battery management. The 200W charging capacity of this system keeps you powered through long winter nights. The system powers, and includes, low voltage louver motors and low energy use inflation blower system. Fully installed. Can also power the automated side ventilation upgrade listed above - $1600
While this solar package is generally more than capable of powering our low voltage/low energy hoophouse components, there is no guarantee that it will meet your total energy needs throughout the year. Local weather and site conditions, shading from buildings or trees, and your actual energy use will determine if additional panels and/or batteries are required.
