Tell us about yourself!
Good site. I am preparing to build a yurt up here in Alberta. Can use all the info I can get my hands on . I would really appreciate it if you could send me the hole spacing for the lattice walls. I don't want to mess that up . Any knowledge on the rafters would be good as well. Thanks in advance
So where are the instructables ??? Lots of pictures. But I'm not clairvoyant . And besides , you can buy these allready made up and with a HEAT CONTROL
I am surprised to see you using OSB for any outside surface. When it gets wet it expands . For my money . Spend the extra $$$ and go with plywood. Other than that, NICE JOB
Yeah Maybe there is waterproof OSB, but I'm a bit leary about OSB PERIOD. The surface MAY be waterproof , but what about the edges? That is where the moisture gets in. Paint may help for a while , but I would still go with plywood. I went so far as to use plywood on my house when I was building it . Sure it cost me a bit more, but I know what I have . I will not use OSB. It's a product made from wood scraps , you know , Garbage . And the lumber companies are profiting from it. Rubs me the wrong way . But to each his own rite?
There are people living year round in yurts in Alaska. Look um up on youtube.
A few things you missed. A band or CABLE around the top of the wall when erected . This is what gives the walls their strength. Without it you GET what you GOT. Don't be discouraged . You can find ALL KINDS of videos on that wonderful thing called the internet . Do a little research , and give it another try. I'm sure the next attempt will be much more successful. HAVE FUN
