Default Built for camping

I built a 4.5 meter Mongolian style Ger last year to use camping, especially at Glass Buttes, Oregon which is at elevation 4500 in the camping area. Each year at spring break, there is a knappin (where people get together to make arrowheads/stone tools) there. This time of year Glass Buttes can be cold. Our first day was below freezing, and the night down to 15 degrees F. I had bought the smallest stove (the Two Dog model) the Four dog Stove Company offers. A long story short, that wee stove nearly drove us outside until I got it damped down. Here are a couple of shots of the Ger.

Just looking at the little bit you can see of the stove, it does look like it is more than adequate. I see on their site that model weighs about 40lbs. Not bad.

Nice. What's the cover made from?

The outer cover is a 10 oz vinyl coated polyester canvas. It is very water proof, but not so breathable. There is a half inch layer of felt under with a white cotton liner under that. The wee wood stove was very capable of heating it to over 100 when it was 15 outside.

Looks like a great setup.

Good job. Door is particularly nice five panel Mongolian design. Mine is five as well and very similar. I painted it with the common Mongolian 'nomadic 3 stripe' line design on the face of all the stiles and rails. That design is representational of the ongoing nomadic life of herdsmen.
