You're getting there. Making the khana is definitely alot of work. I've built khana for both my yurts. Good job.

I spent a few hours this morning tying and tying and tying and tying and tying and some more tying. It was worth it since in just about 3 hours I have my 2nd wall just about done. I would have been done but I ran out of slats. Off to Home Depot.

Your khana is growing nicely. Mine is about to be made yet. I plan to go the classic way and use rawhide straps for connecting.

I hope to start the khana in a week or two. Right now I'm building the platform under the yurt (see my thread here).

OOOOh Yeah!! The wall is done. I'm building a door frame this afternoon. Then I'll check out how the crown and rafters work. I built a 32 slot wheel when I think I should have built a 36 Slot. I'll see if it will work. If not I have to whip out a new wheel.

That's a good looking 9 cross yurt khana. Well done.

32 rafters will work fine based on eyeballing the crosses in your photo, and with 2 above the door frame. If not, just skip a rafter cross on the khana in a couple places so they orient straight into the roof ring. Or stuff a couple of yer bowed ones up in there.

Thanks for the encouragement. I tend to worry and over think everything.
