Re: Spirit mountain yurt scam/plea

I second Jake's words. I replaced a whole section of lathe wall on my SMY, only to have it collapse for me just as it had for the previous owner. If you're going to rebuild, I would definitely go...

Re: Cooking Stove Size

Hey Ineffable- welcome to the site!

Re: Yurt complex

Hey Cloe - It's always possible!
Entire houses can be built sitting on wood platforms, to a degree. All you have to consider is the load and the supports. It sounds like you are thinking about...

Re: Cooking Stove Size

Well, strictly from a product and materials perspective I don't have trouble making "smaller than normal" work. I'm more concerned with use. The two potential issues there are 1) as you noted, Bob,...

Cooking Stove Size

Plenty of talk about woodstoves here, and well warranted, but how about [electric or gas] cooking stoves?
In trying to make the most of our space, and use fewer resources, we've been thinking about...

Only a Yurt in Spirit

After abandoning our immediate hopes for a yurt I have been going whole hog into renovating the beat-up house on our property. In the process of envisioning our ideal living space, my wife and I are...

Re: Bill Coperthwaite Passes Away

I knew next to nothing about Bill 'till I checked out Circle In's blog earlier this year and read about her family's visit to his place. That small vignette of his life made a big impact on me - here...

Re: Path to Yurtizenship

Thanks for the suggestions, friends. We tried the detached bedroom idea with the building fellow, but it was not on his radar of possibilities. Anywhere someone sleeps, that's a dwelling, he says. ...

Re: Path to Yurtizenship

Well, we've come to the point where we need to hang up our yurt hopes for the time being.

Re: Finishing a Weathered Platform

Thanks PY and Robo. My father-in-law gave me the advice that a belt sander would be tediously slow, so a floor sander rental is definitely in my future.

Re: Lighting The Outhouse With a 9 Volt Battery and LED's

It would probably be good to use one of those for every bathroom. At least, every one that has reading material in it :)

Re: Sizing a wood stove for a 20' yurt ?

Along the lines of wood stove size, I wonder if anyone who has put one on a raised platform felt it necessary to take into account weight in the location. I figure it would be somewhere around...

Re: Gutters on the Yurt Skirt
