High Tunnel Greenhouse

Does not include any taxes or shipping fees.

This page talks about our high tunnel greenhouse.  It is our most current greenhouse design.  Made with PVC instead of Metal.  It is much sturdier and taller then our previous greenhouses.  Cost about $2000 to put in compared to about $9000 for a metal one.  With the electric outlets, fans, evaporative cooler ($4000) and all the accessories you see it, cost us about $9000. 

We get the evaporative coolers from Port-A-Cool.  They are very durable and last for years.  I have one that we got six years ago and we had to replace the pump because of the hard water.  I sold these when I was in Iraq as well.  These are built in Texas.

This is our completed hoop house.  I told the guys to add four feet to it.  They misunderstood me and added four feet to each side.  Which is one of those mistakes that ends up being a good mistake. I like the extra height.  We used 11/4 PVC instead of the usual 3/4 inch.  We put the pipe 2 feet apart.  We added about 7 rows of strengthening trusses.  We made the plastic cover where we can drop it during the summer time for added cooling.  We have one fan as an intake and one as an exhaust fan.  We constructed a better door.  We added a place to plant inside since we had too many shelves.  We are not going to start as many plants this year (2021).
