I got A LOT completed over the weekend. I went from a bare platform to a nearly finished yurt. I just need to finish attaching the canvas walls and then fine tune everything.

Thanks for all the help!! It has been a journey.

Ohh, I forgot to ask. How do I know if the wall cable is tight enough? I was able to sit on the roof ring, and its level.

More photos as well.

Tomorrow I plan to install the stove. I ended up making a roof cover from plywood which I will cover with some copper flashing which I found for $10. I also need to do some punch out work and clean the floor. Im hoping to sleep in it tomorrow night!

Thanks again for all the info!
