24 ft wide tunnel at a local educational institution. The larger pathways provide the needed space for big groups or those with disabilities, and the space also doubles as a wash station (sink against far wall). • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Sometimes older tunnels need an upgrade. This 24 ft x 60 ft high tunnel needed a more permanent entrance option so we made some custom doors. The pictures door is 8 ft wide x 7 ft tall when open, and only took about 40 minutes to completely install. • • • • #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

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

When old structures get retrofitted...salvaged hoops on a farm with some new upgrades. Door, fan, end framing, trusses, greenhouse poly, and roll-ups from TVH. It is crazy how adding heavy duty components to older (or salvaged) tunnels often makes those same core structures look brand new. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #ohiofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Running strings, squaring, and anchoring... When talking to prospective High Tunnel owners taking on these steps are among their biggest worries... No need to worry though because we have detailed videos on our YouTube channel that show exactly how to run strings, square a structure, and anchor. If you are worried about taking on this portion of a High Tunnel install just follow the link in our bio to our YouTube page and check out our 11 video Playlist that takes you from running strings all the way to installing greenhouse plastic. • • • #hightunnel #hoophouse #construction #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #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

Urban farming and homesteading is real, and this picture is an example of a backyard being transformed from an unproductive lawn to year round food production...tunnel size on this one is 24 ft. x 40 ft....Looks like this customer maxed out those set-back requirements. #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #urbanhomesteading #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

We post a lot of pictures of sliding doors, and while their hardware isn't as pretty (or as compelling) as a picture of a finished tunnel, we figured we'd show how the sliding doors move in their track. Here is a close up of a roller that was just installed on the top of one of our sliding doors. These rollers are installed at two points per door section, six inches in from each side. Once installed, the rollers slide into the end of an aluminum track that gets installed above the door header...so, these little guys are what keep the doors sliding freely #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #greenhousedesign #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #greenhousedoor #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #buildinggreenhouses #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

We post a lot of pictures of our larger models, but we have something for pretty much any grower; market gardeners, backyard growers, homesteaders, CSA producers, etc. The tunnel in this picture is our 17 ft. x 28 ft. Standard Package, and I still remember why we started producing these 17 ft. wide tunnels...Someone asked us to because they wouldn't be able to fit our 20 ft wide tunnel in their plot. We said "ok", and six-ish years later we are still producing these structures for growers all over.

Tunnel greens soaking in the sun after the frost blanket has been pulled out of the way. This customer has set up full length cables that run from end to end that the frost blanket rests on...you can kind of see the blanket bunched up at the bottom of the picture. There are pros and cons to every frost blanket setup, but one benefit of this type of layout would be the frost blanket isn't laying in between the rows getting stepped on and beat up over time...maybe this helps keep the blankets usable a year or two longer #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #frostblanket #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

This structure is 20 ft. x 72 ft. It is set up with 8mm twin wall polycarb end-walls, thermostatically controlled forced ventilation, a heater, and an inflated double layer covering (...soon to be inflated since electrical is just getting run now).

It's that time of year again. If you have a tunnel, and even if you don't, this scene is likely very familiar. Frost blanket does a great job keeping the earths stored temperatures close to your plants. We are a distributor of the DeWitt brand frost blanket, so if anyone needs some extra blanket, don't hesitate to shoot us a line. Stay warm out there! #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

What lettuce can look like in an unheated high tunnel. Frost blanket (seen to the left of the row) is laid over top the lettuce on the EMT mini-hoops in the evenings, and it goes a long way to keep radiant ground heat close to the plants. If you haven't used frost blanket, and are trying to grow through the cold months, I would highly recommend giving it a try #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #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

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
