Default Rafter math

Of course for the right rafter length you take difference in height of top of wall and compression ring (b) + radius of circle minus half width of compressing ring (a)= square root of c?

:head scratch: huh?

For the yurts rafter length lay out a full scale cross section of your yurt wall and ring on the floor. Lay rafter stock on your layout. Mark. Cut. There's your master rafter pattern. Less the rafters over the door.

Rafters with pitch on them won't need any extra length. They'll stick in place.
