The time is coming when simple, easy-to-build shelter will be an important need to be filled.

There are many of us now who need reliable, easily transported shelter, and there are some of us who have a strong understanding and background in these things.

Whyt Mountain bear has recently started a discussion about one such type of structure and Michael Treehouse has contributed greatly to that thread.

There is more detail that needs to be ironed out, so I've created this group to accommodate those discussions, and any others pertaining to our need for safe reliable structures.

Thanks Michael. I agree that does about cover it. And your angle details are the missing link.

I think the only other issue for WMB is to move his stove pipe away from center. Make sense to you?

It looks like these "Hexa-Yurt" folks have pretty much covered it.

I can add that, for a plywood one, the vertical joints are 120 degrees, and the horizontal ones, between the roof and the walls, are also 120. The face angles between the triangles of the conical roof are 151 degrees.

So, you could rip some 2 x 4's at 60 and some at 75 1/2 degrees, and screw the plywood onto them at the edges before assembly.
