Default Ben's Solar Hoop House

Hey Everyone!

A friend of mine has a conduit bender specifically designed to bend standard 10' long conduit into a 6' half circle. I stopped over, and he showed me how to use it. (Thanks Rob!)

I bent up 9 conduits to use as supports for basic little greenhouses.

I simply pounded a stake into the ground to make a hole, then put the conduit's ends into the holes, the cover with construction plastic.

One hoop house is done so far. I propped up the supports for the other, just to show how it will look. I hope to do two more hoop houses this weekend.

Photos below!

-Ben
