Re: [MedievalSawdust] Re: roundhouse/yurt
- I was trying to sort out the same issue, but I can't do any tenting until after I go house shopping. I was out-ranked on the budget priorities 8- ) Now I'm stuck with Ye Olde Nylon Dome one more summer.I've seen a few sites with prototype portable roundhouses, but naturally I can't find the links. I think it would be really easy to disguise a yurt as a roundhouse with some creative painting. The more tent-like roundtents looked like a lot of ropes and jerry-rigging though.I've only been in one yurt so far, and I love the open headspace and the stability. I'm still trying to sort out just how much space I need/want vs. how much tent I want to haul. I guess I'll spend this camping season peeking at other people's tents to get a feel for what works. Not that there are many round house types 8- ))--Saerlaith----- Original Message -----From: SusySent: Wednesday, December 08, 2004 5:11 PMSubject: Re: [MedievalSawdust] Re: Novice Woodworking QuestionsHail Yurt Goddess!As a Island Celt a Yurt comes mighty close to the roundhouse I covet.... but they're a little difficult to move from one event to the next. What with the stone and wicker work ...Do you have any familiarity with the Celtic roundhouse, and do you have any suggestions for converting the plans for a yurt to the proportion of a roundhouse? I love the design of the yurt and roundhouse and I assume the round design was very effective in dealing with the winds of the isles just as the winds of the steppes.The ease of setting up and taking down a yurt also appeals to me greatly! though I'd be willing to go to a little more trouble to achieve the roundhouse thing.Blessings to you o goddess of the yurt!!!Scaighaghbtw I also covet your job... awesome!
