Using 1 1/4" PVC pipe (purchased the 10' tube), we measured and cut 31" for the top piece and 20" for the two side vertical pieces. The bottom pieces ("feet") are 8-9" on each side of the Tee connector. I also purchased two tee connectors for the feet (1 1/4" size) and two elbows for the top (1 1/4"), as well as 4 end caps (1 1/4" size) for the feet.

My wonderful husband also had to make some adjustments to the light since 2' fluorescent lights do not usually come with a cord. So he wired in the cord and attached it to a 2x4 piece of wood in order to be able to hang it from chains and s-hooks for adjusting as the plants grow.
I think the plants look happy so far....only 6 days later! Much happier than they would be if the were out in this March 25th snow we're having!
