Default Lattice slates to short

Help, miss read instructions for my yurt.
I wanted 8ft wall so I bought 8 ft 1x2's.
I only noticed the problem when I started drilling holes.

The correct instructions were for 11.3 ft slates, when assembled would give 8ft walls.
Any way to add the extra length on my 8ft slates, that are already drilled?

Nope.

Use the 8'ers for a 5'4" tall wall for a camping yurt of 10' to say 20' diameter. My yurt has the wall that height-I used 8' 2X to make my lattice- and imo it is the perfect height for camping or nomadic size yurt.

If I'm not mistaken Mongolian yurts always have a wall lattice at 45 degrees, and the walls look no taller than 4' on average in the photos and vids I have watched on youtube. Short walls are fine. I definitely like standing at the wall without ducking my head though. For me 4' would be too short. Just saying.

You need 12' stock to make an 8' tall wall, assuming the lattice runs on a 45 degree angle. 11'3'' sounds about right, but you'll need to buy 12' stock. Nobody sells lumber at 11'3".

My traditional Mongolian Yurt walls are 5 feet at the parimeter and it works well. You do have to duck entering.

My old entry door was right at 5'. Yup, you gotta bend some, but it beats throwing canvas aside big time.
