Re: 30ft workshop yurt build (9 meters)

Progress has been slow but steady.
I have bought almost all my materials, and I've cut the lattice laths and roof rafters to the correct length.

Re: 30ft workshop yurt build (9 meters)

Very good point Bob. The ends of the pipe are just blocked by rags, with space for the steam to escape at the far end.

Re: 30ft workshop yurt build (9 meters)

Fail!
Not enough steam was generated by my gas cooker. Half the pipe got to maybe 70degC, but the far end was cool to touch even after an hour. The whole thing needs to be full of boiling steam. ...

Re: 30ft workshop yurt build (9 meters)

You know you're building a big yurt, when you have to look up Vehicle Load Maximum Dimensions, and size the parts to be just smaller than that. Maximum sideways load for a regular car in NZ is 2.5m.

The ring will be made of 4 rings of 2x4, laminated and screwed, to finally make a finished...

I'm building a 30ft (9.15m) yurt for use as a workshop. This will be the third yurt I've built, and I'm kind of just winging it on this one, no plans... just taking what worked on the previous yurts,...
