best construction plans for 30' yurt
 
i'm looking for recommendations for building plans for a 30' (or similar) yurt built from scratch. canvas walls, felt insulation. i don't trust my math to figure this out on my own and would like to use step by step instructions specific to this large dimension. thanks for your help!

I can't help with the large plan. If you haven't built a yurt from scratch before, you might be interested in building a small yurt to gain some build skills. If so, google:

clan yama kaminari yurt

I built the 16'er for about $700 including canvas tarp cover. It is on this site under 'homemade yurt'

I looked up the plans for a 16'er, but I want the outside walls to be taller. Is there anything I need to look into specifically to raise the outside walls to say 8' or 9'?

Instead of 8' rips, use 10'. For structural strength reasons and wind resistance I wouldn't go taller than whatever 10' would give you, with the Kaminari plan..
