Re: Build a yurt ourselves or buy a kit?

The big issue with building a yurt yourself from my understanding is sewing the covering. From what I have heard this is where most DIYers have the biggest trouble. It takes a lot of space and a very...

Re: Extra wall protection from bears

BTW there is a reason why most cabin doors swing out instead of in. It is due to bears. A bear can push a door in if the hinges swing in fairly easy, but having the door swing out and having a very...
