Hoophouse part 5 of 5

Here's the view of the inside tractor door. I added a man door to the side, so that if I had animals inside I didn't have a HUGE opening to deal with.

Attaching the two hoophouses together was time consuming. When I put these up I made one less hoop than designed, giving myself 4 extra feet of plastic. At the center I bolted a piece of channel and then attached one sheet to it. I then set up a ladder zipped up the second plastic sheet 4" at a time. I had to climb the ladder 100 times, moving it 4" forward. Took 4 hours.
My own personal stairmaster. Now I'll finish the side rails, chicken wire and put in some raised beds for the plants.
