DIY Hoop House [1]: A few materials used to build this: PVC plumbing pipe, fence posts, rebar and clear plastic. Nicely done, lots of pictures.

From Old Windows [2]: Recycle and reuse with this project, round up some old windows and make this clever structure.

PVC Hoops [3]: This can extend your warm-season gardening a month or more at both ends, and makes it possible for year-round gardeners to grow a wider variety of plants through the winter.

Lumber & Plastic [4]: Details aren’t thorough but enough to guide an experienced builder. Made with lumber and plastic.
