Re: HexaYurts

I am building a H15 for this year. Did you stagger the 2' wall panels or did you just put all of them towards the top? thinking in terms of stability. Its a pretty awesome setup you have there! jkisha, this doesn't say anything about being foil backed... that's what I've been searching for. Does tha...

Re: HexaYurts

so how much tape is required for a build?

i am guessing the edges are done with the foil tape and the build with the 6in tape, correct? so how many rolls of both for a 8' yurt ( well with 6' walls so essentially a 10' yurt)
