With a north stone wall intact, a concrete floor with drainage, it's 
more like a lean-to greenhouse or a solar greenhouse rather than a hoop 

You can find a lot of lean-to designs by looking at solar greenhouses 
(see resources listed by ATTRA, etc) .

You may need to build it smaller than the total concrete footprint.  A 
lean-to can't be too wide.

For seedlings you'll want root-zone heating options.
