In fact it's the only method for hydroponics I have any experience with because of the very limited space I have inside my home. Don't let its' simplicity fool you though. I have had no problems getting great results with growing bell peppers and tomatoes in my bubbler bucket systems.
Hydroponics has been given a bad reputation due to it's use in the Marijuana industry. But it is such a great tool for growing your own vegetables year round in your home. Your vegetables, herbs, and spices grow faster and larger then they would if planted in dirt. Hydroponic and Aeroponic technology is continually improving, and people are constantly coming up with many ways to create systems using everyday household items.

Here's an awesome DIY cattle panel greenhouse design from Alan (aka TexasPrepper2) at HomesteadAdvisor.com. It appears to be simple enough for a single person to construct in less than a day and yet is sturdy, functional, and even looks great. With just a quick estimation, this greenhouse would cost about $120 to build with all new materials. And if you have extra lumber, nails, screws, etc lying around you could probably build this for next to nothing.
