    Monkey Hut

    Very Nice OP. I have a similar one I constructed for Burning Man as well. But instead of using the T and X connectors, I used The next size up pipe cut into 18" lengths as slip joints. And instead of have a segmented center rib I use two additional 10' lengths. Then I lash the two center ribs with cut recycled bike inner tubes.

You can use a tarp as the foot print of the monkey hut. and use it as bre defined points to drive your rebar through. It gives great spacing for the ribs that is completely uniform.(and in my case lined up withing an inch or two with the grommets on the agro netting.
