Default Re: Pros & cons for high/low walls (lattice)?

I have watched several youtube videos of Mongolian families/herders erecting and dismantling their yurts.

These nomadic people move their yurts from pasture to pasture a few times every year. For a fact lower walls make erecting and dismantling yurts easier. Yurts are sized by number of khana panels joined together. Four panel, five panel, six panel etc. Short length, and short height khana tied to eachother with cordage are easy to open and close. Plus extremely solid with the laths on approximately six inch centers.

There are no bolts or other hardware holding the tent together. It is all tied together with rope and sash-in fact that works perfectly for nomadic use. The rafters are merely looped into place atop all the lath crosses. No notches, and no steel cable.

Really large yurts have supports holding up the ring.

The yurts are covered with felt. In addition Mongolia is an arid country, absolutely perfect for yurts.

Lastly, it takes less fuel to heat yurts with short walls. Really, I have said it many times, Mongolians have nomadic yurts all figured out. They should have. It is likely they have have been living in yurts for centuries.
