We all will miss Becky. She has and will continue to contribute to everyone who is a real yurt enthusiast.

Default Jeff -'Snow and Wind Kits' / Ron T. - Becky K.

Absolutely Ron (Tree-Bones),

I Visted Bill Coperthwaite at his home this August and he was the first one to inform me of Becky's un-timely passing. He spoke of her as a friend, and we shared a moment of silence. Truly, she was and will continue to be a good example for us all.


To answer your query Jeff:

When you get over a 20 foot diameter, interior bracing or so-called "Wind and Snow Kits" are a good idea and sometimes (the bigger you go) a neccesity.

In my experience, with a 20 foot or less diameter it is completely un-neccesary and a waste of valuable resources.

I make 20 foot diameter and 10 foot diameter yurts for commercial sale, so, I don't use interior studs.

Also, our design is different in that we are doing some yurts with an 18" over-hang, and all with a pentagonal center piece which changes some of the rules of western American-style yurts.
