Default 30' Rainer Rebuild

Hi all!

First post here! What at amazing community it seems. Anyway, I will be needing some help/advice as I kickoff this project. Here we go.

2 years ago I rescued a 30' Rainer with SIPS panels for FREE! I wasn't able to construct it so it has been sitting on pallets and tarped. Not ideal I know but I had to do it. So now the construction begins! This will be located on my organic farm with hopes to live in it someday, when the city cooperates, but will mostly be used for meeting space, farm dinners, classes, ect.

This yurt was used to show a $30millon property in Jackson Hole, WY and partially collapsed due to snow and not being maintained. I know it needs some new pieces but I think it is well worth it to fix. I am guessing it will costs around $12-15k to construct, with the platform included.

The Good:
-SIPS
-Rafters
-Lattice (need one section replaced)
-Glass French doors, 2 glass windows, backdoor
-Wall and roof

insulation



The Bad:
-SIPS have some water and mouse damage. I hope to be able to cut out the rotting OSB and replace
-Door and window frames are coming apart but I think a friend can help fix with some wood glue and screws.
-Need new wall and roof canvas
-Need new

dome

and

center ring



I am including some pictures, the first is the original pile I rescued along with the yurt when it was up. Then the damage it occurred and finally some of the pieces that need repair after storing. Hoping to continue on this thread as the build progresses. I will have a lot of questions. Thanks all! (Sorry I made a duplicate post on the yurt repair thread but figured this would be a better fit)

Of course it is worth it.

Are you making the

center ring

or buying it? What is the condition of the cable?

@jafo just checking. first yurt project and I don't want to get in over my head.

I am buying the center ring. Cable is great, is that an expensive component?

What do you think about those SIPS? I dont need it to be perfect, but I plan to cut out the rot and glue on some fresh OSB pieces.

The cable is maybe the most important part, since the entire yurt will fall down without it. As long as all the strands are intact, you should be good.

I don't know much about SIPS panels, sorry. We built a traditional platform for ours.

Keep in mind "I CAN do this."

Make what you need using parts you have as template. Just jump in and go. If you have a carpenter buddy ask him for advice.

And if you need cover work, I suggest jobbing it out with one of the commercial suppliers here.
