Default Help- vinyl roof needed

Hi- I've built my own yurt... it's up and I'm living in it, but I have waterproofing issues on the roof canvas. So, I'd like to buy a vinyl roof so I don't have anymore anxiety attacks about the roof leaking (its tarped and I'm dry now . I copied the roof frame exactly like a Pacific yurt but they won't sell parts to people who don't buy their whole kit. Neither does

Colorado yurts

... can anyone help me find/order/buy a vinyl roof for a 24' yurt that has 30 degree roof pitch with same window

dome

as pacific yurt? I really appreciate company names that would sell me a roof. I'm handy and can make it work! Thanks

Hmm, I am kind of surprised they won't do that.. Have to tried Ranier yurts? I seem to recall them saying they would do that. I also believe

Blue Ridge yurts

do too..

If none of them, I know for a fact that

Surely Yurts

would do it.

Hi,

I've included below a yurt forum testimonial from a fellow Northern Californian yurt dweller that had us fabricate a new cover. I've also included photos from a complete cover replacement up in Maine.

Please contact me if you are interested. Would love to get this done right for you

Re: 32' yurt lost its roof!
Just wanted to let you all know the happy resolution. Steve from Surely Yurts came out with his team and sewed a new roof for our 32'yurt! He did a great job and we just had a good rain and no leaks! Jafo vouched for him--I admit I was a bit nervous transferring a bunch of money into a strangers' account, but Steve showed up and did the job. Thanks,

Surely Yurts

, and you've got my recommendation! And thanks to everyone on the Yurt Forum for helping us solve this problem!

I can vouch for Steve too. He built a yurt for me up in the Adirondacks and he also did a couple other projects for me.

BTW, what a great idea on holding open those window flaps... I am definitely going to try that.

Thanks Bob & Jafo!

Would be glad to help.

More importantly I respect the fact that *tina built his/her own yurt and I want to encourage more of that and help others help themselves.

I am currently putting together another yurt building workshop that will be hosted at the Vermont jewelry school next year. When I get everything together I will hand it over to Mr. Jafo our benevolent forum administrator so that he can publish it here on the forum.

Most of the yurt building workshops out there are for small yurts which are wonderful and my favorites to build, but I want to do a 24' yurt building workshop so that it is a truly live-able size.

More to come on that and thanks again for your support and continued work to keep this forum positive and relevant.

-Cheers

Steve

Steve I recently downsized my yurt to 12'7". I always thought that was gonna be way too small. I was wrong. In fact it's a very nice size.

Cool, that is still a massive tent!

I used to live in a 10 footer in my bachelor days... The wife and now our daughter came along so I put a 20' yurt addition onto the old 'Monks Yurt' as it came to be called.
