They are at the beginning of the thread. Don't know why you can't see them.

Well the beginning of that thread is page 1, this is page 2. See page number at the bottom right of the screen above the quick reply box.

There is no spiraling or torquing in that picture that I can see.

Thanks. Why do you think the ring has slipped? Do the cables stretch? We think our yurt is over 50 years old.

I am guessing as the structure moves in the wind or for whatever reason, the rafters slowly wrench their way upwards. Kind of like wiggling a cork out of a bottle. On most manufactured yurts you see today, the rafters are attached to the

center ring

somehow. Some bolt them in with brackets, or like my Pacific Yurt, they are pinned into the ring. That is to say there is a hole in the ring that accepts a pin that is protruding from the end of the rafter.

I am not exactly sure how you would get them back down safely. I would think that somehow you would have to jack the

center ring

up with a post and floor jack? I am no engineer or carpenter though so don't take my word for it.

Thanks! We were looking at jacking the lower ones up and the ring with them. There is an interior wall (bathroom) that appears to be holding roof joists up, in what we assumed is the original position, but we don't know for sure when anything was dinner so the bath walk could have been added after the shift.
