We've touched up the roof layers today and put the chimney pipe through. Looks and fits pretty well. Will post pix later.

Sorry, still no photos nor much progress in the last two days, I've been busy planting a bunch of new fruit trees. Improving our little homestead and trying to make it more sustainable. Most of our trees are very old and I wanted to start a new generation to replace them in the future. Also planted some things we never tried before (such as medlars).

Finally bringing you a photo of the chimney. Can go higher if needed.


Today we've finally solved out the upper wall tarps edge and tied it to the floor deck. Used woodscrew hooks and nylon cord. The lower tarp has its edge tied as well, plus it's overlaid by the zig-zag cord of the upper tarp. I think it should hold well enough, but may add another cord around the whole thing if needed.

Our yurt is electrified! Thanks to my BIL for doing the electro stuff for me.

Right now it's just the main input cable coming in. I'll post photo of a socket board I made, it's attached to the khana easily. The rest of the cables will be plugged to this and placed once we know where we need them - depends on furniture and such.

Are you on the grid or is it something different?

Just regular grid. May add a solar panel someday. Since the grid is often down in this remote area, I'm well equipped and used to live off it as well. In the yurt it will mainly power up our laptops and some lights, not much more needed.

Good thinking. It'll be obvious where they're needed once you've lived there awhile.

Here's the electro board. It has another wooden square on the back side, that fits between khana laths and keeps the thing from sliding, plus there's a third piece that's placed on the other side of khana and is bolted to the socket board to keep everything in place.
