I am always amazed at peoples abilities. I am handy but I would not attempt to build my own yurt. The fact that you, Krusty, built your own log/timber frame home with had tools, you will not have a problem with this project.

I have a Ger and it looks like the lattice is held together with leather strips.

I am about ready to start renting my yurt and tiny house combination. I will send out the AirBnb link when I complete it.

Looking forward to seeing your progress. Lots of pictures would be appreciated.

Chris

I watched the video, nice.
Forget about the yurt, I love all your equipment��. That ash is beautiful.
So you already must have got my plans, thanks for the plug in the video.
Interested to see the rest of the build.

So Richard, since you're here, what cordage do you use to tie your laths together?

I use 3/16” diamond braid rope. I get mine direct from a rope manufacturer.
You can get colored diamond braid rope at Home Depot and Lowes. Lowe’s is slightly thinner and only inred or green. Home Depot have more colors. You need polypropylene and it needs to be soft as the stiffer rope is harder to get tight.

have been making progress. hands have blisters from tying knots and will have to redo several as I got them tighter after a while. the wall is a single accordion as I deviated from the plans slightly. still lite enough for me to carry myself. should have thinned out the varnish before applying, would have went much quicker thats forsure. by far the most hateful task so far.

my canvas comes this thursday so would like to have the wood bits mostly finished up by then. weather is nice so have been working for $$ during the day unfortunately. drilling was done in a drill press and was straight forward.

episode 2.
