that's very close to what we're doing.

we're arranging to get water significantly closer to BRC than Seattle because, you're right, hauling all that water over 2 mountain ranges is a slightly absurd use of resources. :shock:

RE: Hemming, Seaming/Taping and GROMMETS

1. DO NOT USE METAL GROMMETS ON ALUMINET It's a loosely woven fabric (MUCH looser than standard shade cloth or load cover cloth) and the metal grommets won't hold. The clip grommets work very very well. We spaced them about every 18 inches. 2. Hemming and seaming will give you a cleaner edge, but it...

There's countless cheap, quick, easy ways to survive a strenuous, energetic week on the playa. But I didn't go to prove I could survive, I went to have an amazing time.

Aluminet! WAY COOL!

Two thumbs up from me! HIGHLY recommend Aluminet. Held up without a flinch in last year's wind. Nice light permeation during the day and easily 10 degrees cooler under our struture than neighboring stuctures. Most shade cloth sites also offer clip-on grommets. I recommend those as well. They get bet...

Thanks for the lead on Yellow Solar Seed! I shot them an email. Who knows what will come of it. I looked at electrical conduit before. Yes, it's expensive. But my problem is more with the weight.

I thought of PVC, but it's a little too heavy and bulky.

The Desert Dome site was a great inspiration for the design.

Maybe I should be calling this a Yurt?
