As for book, it could be useful to pick the important stuff from my build and make it into a text file or something. Perhaps it might help some other yurt newbies.

Should receive some more furniture in the next week, so we can unpack into it and get rid of the banana box pile.
Making a coat hanger, using bronze cast direct replicas of certain Roman artifact. For other archeologists, it's gonna be funny, for everyone else it's gonna be a weird coat hanger. I think I'll like it.
Hope I can place another small table for my ammo reloading press somewhere, when all the essential furniture is here.

Building a porch, stairs will soon follow.
Once it's complete, I'll pour some concrete into the ground blocks.

Yes - bamboo is used for khana. Similar to cane that is bent for walking sticks - it is bent in hot sand which is heated up on metal over a fire. I don't know how it works being steam - bent, never tried it.
The khana poles do need a bit of bend so that they can make the concave shape when concertinad out, otherwise they bend out.

Thanks, it's not really an issue anymore, as the yurt is already standing and we live in it.
I've also seen some Mongolian khana meanwhile, made of natural sticks, just flattened on two sides. If I saw that before, guess I would have gone that way.

Almost done! One narrow upper plank will be added yet, that will be in line with the porch floor.
Then just need to add some banister to one side and our stairs are complete.

I'm not completely satisfied with the results, but it serves the purpose and was the first stairs we ever made, so...
