Default building a hops set up

I plan on planting hops and have been thinking about building a support structure. I have a green house in my yard about 20' in length with the length side facing south. It stands about 8' in height.

I was thinking of building some flower boxes on the side and running twine to the top of the green house. My thought was to train the hops along the twine giving them 20' give or take to grow at an angle.

I could build a support structure that is 20' high but this seems like it would be easier.

Does anyone have experience with something like this or think it would work? Thanks
