Hey Jafo!

Nice photos, thanks for sharing some of these ideas with the community.

Can you upload some more photos of how you attached your chimney pipe to the steel post? I'd be curious to see your solution.

Thanks man!

This maybe should be in a under a new thread, but hopefully folks will see it. I have a 24' yurt with the inside vertical 2x4's under each rafter. (Hurricane package?)

Anyway. I do a step ladder, but just bought an extension ladder. Is it safe to lean it against the siding? (Being careful of the canvas). I was attempting to wash the roof this summer - from the step ladder. Quite a pain).

What about inside? Can I use the extension ladder to get to the ring?

Or is any sort of "leaning" against a yurt a bad idea and should all be done from step ladders. Thanks! -- Cindy

I have done this on the outside, but on the inside I use the step ladder. I have a rather sturdy dinning room table that I can put it on to reach the center too.

Agree with Jafo about step ladder. I've also used extension ladder on the outside of my 16' yurt to get up to the ring. I simply layed it parallel with the roof, set my step ladder adjacent to the wall, climbed up it and then onto the extension ladder. Tippy but it worked OK.

The upper section of an extension ladder needs to be butted into a hard surface. If you can extend it up into the ring a few inches, that will work OK. Make sure the bottom can't slip or you might be going for a ride. Any conventional yurt ring that needs an extension ladder to be reached, is gonna take the ladder load no problem.

Hi Stea. Looking at your photo, at first I thought you had a cement foundation! But looks like your drip band is a wide band of canvas? How's that working? (Or what is your system and it's pluses and minuses?

My standard yurt wooded insulated platform sits between 2-4' off the ground. I have spent many an hour considering what to do with it - if anything. Storage, looks, heat retention, the ever present mold considerations. I used to wall it off with bags of leaves in the Fall, then a wind breaker tarp, but so much work, I didn't last winter. No noticeable difference in warmth. Anyway. Just curious. Though I believe that climate, land, owners are all different enough that there is no absolutes in yurt set up or living, always interested in what other people did and how it went. Like the "oh yeah" of not storing anything under the yurt you may need to "get at" in snowy climates. -- Cindy

Hey Cindy, yurt floor is about 16" off the ground but I used a real wide 3/8 band around the circumference. There is about a 2" gap from the ground to the band to allow for air flow.

So far so good.
