Hi, I don't have a farmtek building, but i used one of their hay tarps that i stretched over a green house frame. My greenhouse is 32x 48. I use it to store hay also. I'v had the tarp for 6 years and we have brutal winters here in central New York. Snow, high winds, ice storms, etc. So far the tarp has stood up well. It is their silver/white model . Dont have a catolog in front of me so I forget how many oz. I have 2x10 cca boards along the bottom of the "hoops". Just Lay the tarp on the ground next to the building on a windless day, staple, nail, and use wood laths to attach on one side. Pul it up and over with ropes and helpers and nail the other side. tack on some lath on the end walls and you are done. Sometimes people are getting rid of greenhouses on Craigslist for cheap. Good tarps though. I would buy another.

I like that "on a windless day" comment. Made me laugh. I've been in this part of Montana for 12 years and have yet to see one of those =)

yeah, we get wind all year too. MANY days with 50mph gusts all day and all week. Lake effects snow.....but in the spring , and in the summer ...when it's 100 degrees we DO get days with no wind. I'm sure you have green houses out by you. They get covered somehow. Low or no wind and a few helpers. Gotta have faith

I agree it is possible, and there are actually quite a few days where it is not too gusty (almost never a day with less than 5-10mph, but most with less than 30) There are a fair number of poly covered greenhouses and the Farm-Tek hoop buildings around.The comment just struck me as funny at the time.
