Gonna build a 10x12 greenhouse on the

yurt platform

. The 16' yurt was just too big to heat without

insulation

, and too much for camping. It's a whole lot easier to find a flat spot for 12' vs 16' when out camping.

BTW the 12' American yurt in the wilderness outfitters video, is essentially the same as the two I have built, and the yurt plan I have mentioned here many times over the years, .:

Clan Yama Kaminari yurt

Easy to build and very affordable.

New size is SMALL! WAAAAY small, but will be good for two with a stove in the middle. Less weight, less parts, less cordage, faster setup, smaller 'footprint'. Easier to heat when it is really cold. Now I can build our greenhouse on the old

yurt platform

. lol
