Hinim looking for the material list that you mentioned in your pvc greenhouse YouTube video that said could be found on your website.

Thanks!

There is a series of videos. Here's a link to them:

Well golly gee. I was looking forward to that but the video says...rather than listing the materials on the video they direct the viewer back to the NGA website...but they do not tell the viewer where to go to find the list of materials.

@dave, can you help us with this.

I did look in the Learning Library and found 171 articles (not in alphabetical order by subject Sighing! ) and so far have not found this materials list for the greenhouse. Thank You!

Well, the video does give a list of materials as you watch/listen, but it would be nice if there were also a printed list as well, so you're not scrabbling to write it all down as he talks.

You can pause the video of course but perhaps a written list beneath it would be nice.

It's possible that I'm thinking of something else, but I believe there may have actually been a downloadable materials list that is now gone; last May, which I think was shortly after ATP became NGA, I discovered these videos after a new member posted a similar question about them. I found the "framing diagram" that I downloaded, but can't find the materials list. I wonder if they got deleted in the process of cleaning up the learning library files?

I may still have that file. I didn't "delete" anything but some stuff did get archived into a non-accessible area. I'll see what I can find.

Worst case scenario, someone can listen to the video and type out the shopping list and then I can post it somewhere on the site.

How well does this perform in high winds?
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

UrbanWild, I don't know whether there is any data for this particular hoop house design as far as wind; however, high tunnels of various types are being used extensively, both commercially and by home gardeners.

I'm in the process of constructing a 16x20 version, modified from the one in the videos in that mine has wood-frame sidewalls that are 4' high, with the PVC structure on top of those. My feeling is that the way the PVC part is constructed will be sturdier than other designs that I've seen where the "hoops" are made from a continuous length of pipe and are all held together by separate horizontal purlins.

This is the completed framework of mine, yet to be covered with greenhouse film in the spring:

My main concern, actually, is that we may have made the arc of the PVC structure too shallow and the snow won't slide off as well as it should. I do have a smaller (7x15) hoop house, with a steel frame, which has had no problems with wind or snow; it's firmly anchored and when conditions are expected to be unusually windy I make sure the doors are closed.
