One of our flagship projects as a company was to create DIY Hoop House Style Greenhouse Kits that come with many of the hard-to-find necessary supplies while leaving out the items that could be easily found locally. Because you buy and bend the metal poles at home, using a bit of sweat equity brings down the money out of pocket you need.Unlike our All-Metal Greenhouse kits, these do not qualify for NRCS funding.
Please be aware that these kits do not include the lumber and conduit poles required for greenhouse construction because we cannot ship those items and still offer the best possible price on a high-quality greenhouse. We recommend purchasing them from your local fencing supply or home improvement store. Check out What Materials Do You Need for a Hoop House Build Project for more information on the common building products used for the DIY kits.
These kits require the purchase of metal and lumber locally. We’ve provided information below from Lowe’s and Home Depot on their part numbers for those items and their respective prices* (as of late-2022). Be sure to check local prices, as recent supply chain issues have caused these to increase rapidly in most locations. Check out this quick start guide video for a complete overview of the kits.
*Lumber and conduit poles/top rail fencing poles are not included*
Build requires a hoop bender - not included for cost savings as many customers buy multiple kits.
4’ & 6' benders for use with 1/2" or 3/4" metal conduit.
10', 12' & 20' benders for use with 1-3/8" top rail.

*DUE TO SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES AND RAPIDLY FLUCTUATING PRICES BUYING SUPPLIES LOCALLY FOR BUILDING MAY BE FAR MORE EXPENSIVE THAN EXPECTED.If you intend to build a DIY High Tunnel Greenhouse Kit, please check availability with your local suppliers ahead of time to ensure you can purchase all the items you need. Confirm with the supplier that the items are not back-ordered. Some stores will allow you to order only to find that it will take 8 or more weeks for your items to arrive. Lumber choices may be limited by location. Redwood, cedar, or pressure-treated are the best choices for any structure that will be exposed to moisture.
