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.
