Default Hoop House

I recently saw Maine garden writer, Barbara Damrosche demonstrate one of these. She suggested using electrical conduit for the hoops. The plastic can be attached to the hoops with pieces of pvc pipe slit down the middle to snap over the hoop, sandwiching the plastic in place.

Here's a slide show about the smaller hoop tunnels available through Johnny's seeds:
