Our Design

Grow Appalachia works with two distinct high tunnel designs: Quonset and Gothic.* Both designs have been tested and proven resilient in the field.

 

 

The Quonset (Homestead) High Tunnel-

The Quonset (Homestead) high tunnel is designed with a half circle roof profile. The design allows the tunnel to heat up quickly and is easier to construct.

The tunnel itself is 12 ft wide, 40 ft long and 7 ft high. The sides roll up to provide ventilation throughout and the rolling mechanism makes it easy for growers to do themselves.

The “Homestead High Tunnel” meets and/or exceeds all NRCS standards for grant-funded high tunnels and is a manageable size for all families.

The Gothic High Tunnel

The Gothic high tunnel is designed with a peaked roof profile. The design allows the grower more headroom on the sides of the tunnel. This design also allows the tunnel to shed snow and water more easily in comparison to the Quonset model.

The tunnel itself is 15 ft wide, 48 ft long and 9 ft high. The sides roll up to provide ventilation throughout and the rolling mechanism makes it easy for growers to do themselves.

The Gothic high tunnel meets and/or exceeds all NRCS standards for grant-funded high tunnels and is also a manageable size for all families.

 

 

*Grow Appalachia staff can change the length dimensions for tunnels in 4ft increments. If you are interested in a length different than what you see above, please note that preference when you contact staff through our inquiry form.
