Hexayurt Project – How To Live Wiki

Steve pointed out that I hadn’t posted about this yet so here it is. One of the links that I lost in the iBook freezing up and firefox not reloading all the many windows and tabs that I had open.

Lotta potential in this design. I am thinking about using a framing system of some kind (2×2 or 2×4 with some trimming done or maybe bamboo or saplings) and an alternative fabric and/or plastic roofing/siding. I realize this defeats the purpose behind this design but for the buildings I need I think it will work out cheaper though not necessarily cooler/warmer.

Pavilion 2003

Not quite a period design but these folks make a lot of sense.  They have taken and redesigned the entire pavilion to make the stresses flow from top to bottom via straps and grommets. No really heavy sewing required.

Trying to collect these links for reference.   Still trying to decide on what kind of tent/pavilion to build.
