Today we finished attaching the other khana end to the frame, rotated the whole thing a bit to get the door where desired and then anchored it to the floor. Did some measuring and have the roof height planned, so I can start making the baganas.

Main parts of the baganas finished, though both ends will get the T-bar yet reinforced by slant braces. First testing with the ring temporarily ductaped.



Couple roof rafters added to mark the hole angle on the ring.

That's right Marshall. This build along is the 'meat and potatoes' for yurt construction archives. Apply yourself, and you too can do it. Good stuff all around.

Thank you guys. I have both baganas finished and reinforced on each end and tonight I'm starting with the ring holes.

Another testing, now with finished baganas and some of the slots in the ring already cut.


We still need to put the

tension cable

over khana top, as you can see it's a bit deformed. Already have the cable and clamps, though I yet have to think of a way to lead it over the door frame. Other than that, the whole thing seems to come together nicely.

It IS coming together nicely. Don't worry about how to run the cable over the door. Make the cable to length. Lay the cable in the crosses and right across the top of the door frame. Drill holes in your rafters near the lath cross and lash the rafter to the frame, and at the same time you'll lash the cable to the frame. Nothings going anywhere if you lash the rafters down to the frame like I did. Bombproof.
