Default Structural repair

If the walls have experienced some serious trauma, how do I go about repairing the lattice structure? Can I use typical framing to repair it or do I need to get crazy and try to rebuild that lattice back up?

Photo or accurate description of 'serious trauma' would help.

I have replaced damaged/split lattice strips with new ones, with my yurt erected. Remove a trashed one and install a new one, one at a time. If knotted, cut the knots. If bolted, simply unbolt. If riveted, drill out the rivet and either rivet, bolt, or tie in a new strip.

Can strips be made from framing lumber? Yup, all my lattice, rafters, and door were made from clear framing lumber bought from Depot or Lowes. Big chain lumber will let you dig through bins for clear wood. It's definitely in there just look it over. If yer cool you'll restack.
