Wheeewww! It's finally done. We started our hoophouse in the middle of Winter, excavating the drainage trenches. We then spent most of Spring dumping ton after ton after ton of gravel into the trenches. After a road trip to Missouri, we returned with a trailer full of metal framing. It took over a month to pound posts into the ground, build arches and lift them into place, and attach bracing. Once the metalwork was complete, we constructed the endwalls with lumber. And finally in the last few weeks we attached all the plastic, with the help of our friends!

This is a long project, and I excited that it is all about to end soon. I have been following your progress for a while now, and I am too excited about the things that you are doing right now. I seriously want to do the same things that you are doing right now. I want to be able to plan projects like this, and do things to help myself become a better engineer, and a better father. Thank you for inspiring me.
