It's 2,10m. I think it's a bit high, but guess it's no need to cut it down. We got longer laths than needed and decided to use them whole, without shortening.
Today I've called the guy who's gonna provide the

insulation

and so far everything seems to be on a good way.
Didn't finish the door frame yet, had to get some different lumber and process it first.

I will have a shorter khana, just under two meters. But how you build is what you need. I want a bit steeper roof slope for snow shedding. And the height I plan, 5.5 feet needs just a slight head ducking for me on entry. I really like how you have documented your progress, its looking great ! I am really looking forward to seeing all of the rest .

My roof pitch is ~23 degrees, typical of traditional yurts. It doesn't shed snow at all. I bang it loose with my fist to keep from damaging the fabric.

I was thinking about 30 roof angle.
Just working on the door frame.

This has nothing to do with yurts... but fwiw 30 to 45 degress is considered slab avalanche angle with 38 degrees the most likely to slide.

I did a couple sheet metal roof jobs of small cabins in Jackson WY back in the late 70s early 80s. They have a real snowpack up there. Sheet metal is the prefered material for your self cleaning roof. lol

Finally have a proper connection installed here, so I can upload better quality pics. Here's one of the door frame, just leaving the glue to set. Then it's gonna get couple bolts through the corners. I made the sides doubled, with a gap between the planks to trap the khana ends in (and bolt them through, of course). Hope that works.

I think I'll place a board beneath the top beam to lower the door itself. It would be a bit too high for a yurt I think. Or perhaps I could make a small window over the door? Both for light and ventilation?
