This weekend my brother Urbanmyth and I erected our hops trellis. The beast is 12ft tall, 12ft long, and 4ft wide. We put room for 5 rows of different hops. Now, some of you might say we didn't give enough room between different variations, but for now it will be fine.
Below are some pictures. The rest can be found here
The cross members with the eye-screws are designed to be removed at the end of the season to harvest the vines. They're just screwed in. The bracing on the uprights is some scrap 1x4 that we had lying around. It will probably need to be replaced in a few years once the weather has its way with it.
Total cost was around $75 including lumber, bolts, and coated deck screws. If you're interested, the materials bill is below:
(6) 2x4x12' pressure treated
(8) 2x4x8' pressure treated
(4) 1/2"x2.5" galvanized hex bolts
(8) 1/2" galv. washers
(4) 1/2" galv. nuts
(1) box of coated deck screws (I forget the weight of the box)
(15) eye screws (I think the eye opening was around 1/2")
I will be uploading a Google SketchUp model soon.
