Roll-up sides are probably the most widely used ventilation feature for high tunnels and hoop houses. Its not super warm yet, but before long many of you will likely roll these up for the entire summer. • • If you are interested in learning how to put these together we have a video on our YouTube channel that walks through the process (link to our channel in bio). If you prefer to read through the steps we also cover this in our most recently published blog post. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #greenhouserollupwalls #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

These are old pics, but I thought I'd share them because side door entrances are super rare, and this series of images gives a small glimpse into how the plastic is layered before a top cover is installed. • • Another small piece of channel was installed just above the door (only visible in the last picture) to create a seal between the top cover and door header. • • We haven't done a side entrance swing door in a while, but if you are having to tackle one on a retro-fit maybe these pics can help out. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

What kind of end-walls do your high tunnels have? • • When you purchase end-wall packages from us (or a structure kit) we pre-cut as much of your end-wall steel as possible and include detailed corresponding drawings. • • The pictures show drawings for three different end-wall configurations we provided for three different customers. The steel tube the customers received corresponded to the shown measurements. Tubes that require trimming are marked as such. • • Our intent is to take most of the guess work out of the building process as possible. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #diygreenhouse #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Three dudes working on a butterfly vent...These vents open up a good amount of end-wall, which helps with passive air movement. While it is hard to beat the air cycling from forced air exhaust systems, these large windows do a good job of letting more air escape when electricity isn't an option...It may be cold now, but pretty soon it will be HOT, and we'll all have to regulate temperatures in our greenhouses and high tunnels... It is never too early to start thinking about managing summer temperatures. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nrcs #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #texasfarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

30 ft wide tunnel with an 8 ft x 8 ft economy entrance in the form of woven plastic; the woven plastic panel can be secured or removed with Spring Wire. The other end of this tunnel has a person door that is used daily. There are a number of entrance options for the pictured opening, but in a jam or to save money a simple square piece of woven plastic isn't a bad option for a large entrance opening that isn't going to be used on a daily basis. • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #nrcs #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Beautiful customer shot of some spinach peaking out from behind Frost Blanket. • Hopefully this spinach can provide a number of cuttings from the time of its planting through the end of its useful time in the tunnel. One of the keys to growing for multiple cuttings through cold weather is to seed early enough for the plant to gain strength before day length reduces significantly...The frost blanket also helps a good deal since the plants perform significantly better if they never drop below 32 degrees F. • As for the structure, this is a decked out 30 ft. x 96 ft. tunnel with 8 mm twin wall polycarbonate end-walls, SolaWrap top cover, interior and end-wall forced air ventilation, and double sliding doors. • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #fourseasonharvest #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #youngfarmers #cannabiscultivation #newyorkfarm #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

30x72 with a big door, insect screened sides, and peak fan...Beneficial wasps will be used for organic pest control in this tunnel, which is the primary reason for the insect netting on the sides. When the wasps are released the big door will remain shut, or will also be screened off until all harmful pest insects have been taken care of #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #ohiofarm #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nrcs #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #michiganfarm #indianafarm #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

We love farms...and growing...and plants...and the weight and meaning those things have to the world at large. Keep growing, keep farming, keep finding your hands in the earth, and keep believing that what you are doing is making a difference, and we will keep putting our blood, sweat, and tears toward supporting you #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #thefutureisfarming #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

This 30 ft. wide tunnel has a lot of carrots outside, and a lot of carrots inside too. This will ensure a continual harvest of green topped carrots right through the coldest months of this year and into the next. Planting carrots in your high tunnels while day length is still long will help them get a good jump on the late season lack of sun that we start to experience in the fall. This "lead time" on planting in high tunnels is important to consider since everything takes longer to grow when there is less daylight every single day. This goes for all veggies being grown for a winter harvest, not just carrots #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #216 #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Crisp nights have been creeping up on us, but the sun has been shining, which is very good for passive heat gain in the high tunnels. Temperatures are going to keep falling, but hopefully as the cooler weather establishes itself all the growers out there will be able to establish a good regimen for keeping the daily heat gain through the coldest parts of the night #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

This tunnel is 30 ft. wide, and unlike one of our recent posts that displayed what thermostatically controlled electrical ventilation looks like, this structure ventilates off of 100% electricity-free passive airflow; all vents and windows still auto open and close, but they operate using hardware components that don't require electricity #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #flowerfarm #flowerfarming #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Have you planted for winter harvest yet? When you need to plant depends on what zone you're in, and what crop being planted. Eliot Coleman's books do a great job walking through planting schedules for tunnel plantings. Michigan State University also has a great planting schedule available on their farm resources page (at least the last time we checked) @ohiocityfarm has already started their plantings in around half of their tunnels #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #clevelandohio #ohiocity #216 #caterpillartunnel #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Air movement is an important part of any covered growing spaces' design. Whether you want to go with passive air movement, or prefer a thermostatically controlled ventilation setup, air movement is key to maintaining a plants production. It helps prevent hurtful temperature spikes, and it also reduces the risk of harmful bacteria and pests that remain in a structure with stagnant overly-humid air. The tunnel in this picture is definitely ready to move some major air. #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #plantnursery #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #growingfood #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

This 30 ft. wide greenhouse model is set-up at a plant nursery for the specific purpose of providing covered retail space for customers to browse plants all year long. While we love the look of the tunnels no matter where they are, we definitely love the way they look when surrounded by beautiful plants! #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nurserylife #plantnursery #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Are you thinking of ordering a High Tunnel or Greenhouse with ridiculously heavy equipment as a part of the package? Heaters, Typhoon Fans, or any number of heavy items might be a part of your ideal package; if this describes you, and you don't have a forklift or tractor to help you along the way, a Duct Jack is a manually operated single person lift that can help lift equipment up to 18' high. Using a Duct Jack can help you get heavy High Tunnel equipment in the correct position for installation. These are available at most equipment rental facilities for about $100 a day, and while that might seem steep it is completely worth it if you are working on a build with limited access to machinery to assist in lifting your equipment...not to mention safety first! #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #greenhousedesign #cannabiscultivation #ohiofarm #indianafarm #michiganfarm #greenhouses #helpfultools #tunnelvisionhoops

Side door greenhouse entrances are coming back in a big way...Well, in some instances at least. If your structure has end-walls that completely roll up and down, or if you have a mobile tunnel, side door entrances could be a functional entrance option to keep the end-wall surface area freed up for ventilation, or structure mobility #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Plantées en mars dans nos serres sur rails, ces délicieuses carottes nantaises ont terminé leur croissance à l’extérieur de la serre pendant que ce sont les courgettes qui ont profité de la chaleur de la serre 😃🌞 #theyseemeroling #movablegreenhouse

I have now attached the frame of the greenhouse to the treated pine base. I did this using U clips and some short screws. The treated pine base is weather resistant and perfect for this. The plastic cover is now just thrown over the frame and tied on. Next step finding planter boxes

We are stoked to up our tomato game in this new greenhouse! 2400 square feet of heirlooms, cherries and beefsteaks going in soon. Arches are up, end walls next, then plastic then planting. #organicfarming #movablegreenhouse

La beauté de nos serres sur rails: Déjà 7 variétés estivales ont été implantées dans nos serres et seront découvertes dans 1 mois et demi lorsque nous déplacerons les serres. Elles auront alors une belle longueur d’avance sur les cultures en champ :) #olistik #movablegreenhouse #springiscoming
