Here’s a DIY project by Christopher from Norway. He show us how to build a hinged hoophouse for a raised bed. It’s a simple and cheap build that gives your raised bed the little extra. He spent about $100 for materials, and takes about 3 hours.
1,5×4 inch untreated wood
9 x 2 meter 16mm PVC pipes
Brackets for pvc pipes
Handle … available here…
Gas cylinder … available here…
Greenhouse Plastic Film … available here…
M12 bolts and nuts
Screws of different sizes
First I started off with the raised bed I made last year for my peppers. The box is about four meters long and one meter wide. It’s made with 1.5″ by 8″ untreated wood.
I started off by making the L-brackets for the pvc-pipes to go onto. Drilled a center hole and cut them to length.This post originally appeared on goodshomedesign.com See it here
