Just got the roof couple minutes ago!
Now only the

insulation

left and we can put it all together.

Here you can see some stuff that kept me busy last week, so I couldn't work on the yurt.

Ok, the

insulation

is ordered and should be here soon. Also got couple carpets to help covering the inner layer. Still need to do some work on the ring: I glued on another (4th) layer, creating wider edge on top, which will overlay the roof canvas upper edge. Now I need to build the crown on the ring and still not sure what to do. Need to make it waterproof enough, but also need to have at least one of the 1/4s able to open and allow securing the roof canvas from the inside. Need to put the stove pipe through. Also would be nice to have it at least partially transparent, as the yurt has no windows now (may get some later, also thinking about a small door window). So I need to combine all those needs into something usable, which I'll be able to make. And now I was away for three days, just came back tonight.
Here's the ring with 4th layer, just trimmed the outer edge. Will sand it, fill all the gaps with waterproof epoxy and likely give it a base paint layer, except the upper surface which will get the crown construction yet.
(the ring is upside down in this picture)

The rim is sanded and shaped, now just need to make the crown assembly.
It's getting cold, I hope they will deliver the insulation before Christmas.

Well, the crown assembly is roughly made, tomorrow I'll cut and sand away all the excess PU glue, fill some minor cracks in the grain (unfortunately, I had to use not very well aged wood for this job) and attach the whole thing to the ring.

The ring looks really good knecht. It will indeed crack if the wood wasn't dry. But, that's that. Just fill the cracks. You can also squirt super glue (cyanoacrylate) in the fine cracks. I've found it will wick deep into the crack.

If I were you I'd paint it and the upper framework with two coats of heavy duty oil based enamel. The paint I used on my entire yurt was hunter green Rustoleum industrial enamel. That stuff is bombproof paint.

You COULD add some sweet Mongolian paint details to the ring and the baganas later after you're moved in. I painted my entry door with a nice Mongolian 'nomadic' line detail last spring.

Thanks, I will surely paint the ring well. Guess I'll use the same red I have on baganas for the bottom part that will be visible from inside, then use likely brown or green (to go with the green roof) outdoor grade paint for the outer parts.
I hope I'll post pics of the finished crown tonight.

Sorry, no pics tonight, I had some other things to do today and now I'm waiting for another filling to dry. Once the crown is attached to the ring, the portions I'm filling would be hard to reach for sanding, so I'm keeping the two parts separate till they are completely done.
