It is rare for a product to exceed expectations; the New Gothic Hoop House was the best gardening investment I made in 2014. It has held strong in spite of whipping mountain winds - up to 50mph - and heavy spring snow storms - up to 24". Thank you Carol and Loy and everyone at Lost Creek Greenhouse Systems.

Designed By Our Team Here At LCGS In Texas, For Eliot Coleman In Maine These Portable Modular Units Are The Best Solution For Gardeners In Ground Garden Needs.
The first photo was taken at Eliot Colemans Farm in Maine, showing two of his students moving and setting up three of our modular design unit system over a newly planted garden section, producing a 12x 30 unit. The second photo shows two of these completed 30 ft units side by side with scissor door & poly covering snapped on.
This connector kit can be used to build 6', 8', 10', or 12' wide round top hoop houses using 1" emt tubing . These hoop house units are designed to be 10 feet long so they are hand portable.
Units can be clamped together end to end using plain stainless steel hose clamped from any hardware store to create any length hoop house you want.
Move your garden next year? NO PROBLEM... Simply remove the hose clamps and two people (see photo) can pick each unit up moving it any were you wish in minutes. These units are the ultimate in simplicity and durability

The advantage of this system is simple and effective. Gardening locations change from year to year as well as garden sizes. Two people (see photo) can bend the hoops and complete the frame in less than one hour. After constructed, each unit is light enough to be easily moved by two people. You can place these units end to end creating as long a hoop house as needed for that garden season and able to be quickly re-configured next season as needed.
