Hoophouse Complete!

 Actually we still have to rig a system to roll up the sidewalls, but for the most part it is now finished! We had to have a few trusty farmer friends come over to help us pull the plastic over the house. Not only did they brave weather in the twenties, but they showed up at eight o'clock in the morning to help us beat the wind. Friends for life. All said and done, this house took about five eight hour days with two people to put up.  Cost for this house so far is around $5000 big ones.  Pricy, we know, but we now have around 2,250 ft. of growing space.  If we make 2.25 per square foot, then our house is paid for!!  I think I'm doing the numbers right.  This house has more square ft than the house we'll live in for the rest of our lives.  Crazy.
