  5. Hi Matt,
    Been following your blog for a couple of years and am getting ready to put up a greenhouse very similar to yours. I bought 8 used 13′ hoops locally last year so mine will be 13’x28′. I’m wondering where you bought your 11 mil film? I know you had mixed feeling about it, but would you recommend it?

    • Hi, Gerald

      I bought it from shelter-systems.com. It has a 84% light transmission. Very tough woven material. Next year I’m expanding my hoop house to 28 feet long and 24 feet wide and it’ll be a gable roof with curved sides, like Eliot Coleman’s houses. The plastic has its plusses, but I think I’m going with a higher transmittance plastic for the new house for the roof, and reuse the woven stuff for the end walls. So, I guess my answer is I like it for the end walls, but not for the roof. Cheers. Matt
