Written for those interested in alternative lifestyles, outdoor living, camping, and do-it-yourself projects, this lively book recounts the author's experiences building his first yurt. Dan Frank Kuehn carefully guides readers through every step of the creation of a 13' diameter, 10' tall model. He covers everything from the poles and lattice that form the basic structure to the pluses and minuses of various materials to the qluxuries like solar windows and lofts. The book highlights new building techniques and contains detailed lists of commercial yurt manufacturers, tools, and materials.When making the final cuts for the wall poles, keep them in three groups: rafter poles, full-length wall poles, and one group of all the ... If you like the Kazakh- style, curved roof line, youa#39;ll need to bend all your rafter poles near the lower end.
