If you want to see a few photos of my yurt, the deck and some details I mentioned above, copy and paste this in the google search box:

Bob Rowlands home made yurt.

Click on images at the top of your page. Mine is the rustic yurt with the green door and spare rafters on either side.

@wintergreen282, appropriate anchoring of the platform for each individual site can vary so we are not able to give specific recommendations. However, Bob has provided some great examples of how the platform can be anchored to the site. Some folks have also used auger anchors with metal straps connected to the floor beams.

The rafter blocking that you mentioned helps rafters to share roof loads and prevent individual rafters from twisting. This is what our zigzag cable blocking is designed to do. Perimeter blocking is 2x4 blocking installed between the rafter supports (vertical studs) to create a secondary compression ring near the top of the wall. This adds a lot of rigidity to resist side pressure from high winds.
