Here, I was all ready to sit here and write up all the math involved with doing a yurt.
And I found a mistake. I built my wall with 1' squares. Now, if you have two 1' lines, with a 90 deg corner between them.. the distance between the furthest points is 1.41 feet. I based my math on each bay being 1', not 1.41'.
The wall I built is the right size for a 15' diameter yurt. Sadly, BB didn't buy enough canvas for a 15' yurt.
Allow me to illustrate:
Or in this case, 1 foot x 1 foot gives you 1.41 feet. I feel dumb. to have built this yurt properly, I would have needed to build the slats with holes spaced 8.5" apart, instead of 1'
Next time, we'll cover the whole set of calculations to build a yurt. Really. I promise.
