It is 6 months later and the framework is holding up great. No reason it wouldn’t. Even though it is more of a “Motel 6” style coop, we built it sturdy just like our Ritz! The 100$ tarps, yes that is the good quality ones, are beginning to show wear and tear already. Several places have pretty good-sized rips, which is rather disappointing. If you want to use cheap tarps and replace them often or use the expensive ones until they are nothing but shreds, hoop houses are a good choice for you. Now don’t get me wrong, we love our hoop houses! We are just rethinking the type of roof. We built the hoop houses sturdy so they will be a lasting permanent yet movable home. Our next step will be to let the tarps continue to wear and then replace them with something long-lasting, perhaps tin. All in all, the hoop house is an inexpensive easy to make a coop. Our girls love it. The ones that sleep in it do anyway. The rest of them, the majority, sleep in the trees so I’m beginning to wonder why we even build the coops! My favorite part of the simple hoop coop is probably the ease in cleaning the dirt floor. We just scoop the poop daily and add it to the compost. No wood chips needed. The girls have also stayed both cool and warm enough in their house. It just needs a better roof.
