Well, since we’ve had these three other great threads, I thought I’d add a bit from today’s yurt rasing we did on my neighbor’s property today.
For those that don’t know Yurts were origionally from Asia and are a fabric lined round building. His is 30’ wide and is a fairly permanent structure. His came with a 15 year guarantee on the roof, etc. They are now used quite a bit in remote living in the rocky mountains. Both as permanent structures and as vacation places. There is a chain of them that you can hike to in the southwest corner of colorado for example.
We had built the deck over the past few weekends, adding about 5’ on each side of deck to the flooring of the yurt. We also had the center ring ready as well as having the wall lattice standing.
About ten neighbors turned up to help, and another crew of four or five will be turning up to finish up the job tomorrow, which is basically a mop up operation because we were able to get most of it installed today. The only real step left to do is put the center dome window in and plumb the door.
Hope you enjoy!
