Re: Kodiak 10x14 Simple Shade Structure and PVC Question

A number of people join lengths of pvc or emt. The pvc uses 12"-18" of the next larger size as a "sleeve" (i.e. if using 1" ribs use 1 1/4" for sleeves). If using emt just buy the proper size "connector" from the store you buy your corners and Tees from.

Re: Conduit Shade Structure Questions

Would "angling" sidewalls help in windy conditions ? Like using a 10' tarp on a 7' high structure and lagging down the bottom edge that is pulled out and taut (roughly 45 degrees).

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

If building a flat top (silver tarp) structure using 1" emt what is the longest "clear space" (no supporting pole) you can go ? I'm thinking of a 14'x14' and wondering if I can get by with only 4 corner posts (?).
Thanks..................Ken

You could do a decent report on BM without attending , IF, you were between 18-20 years old during 1967 or 68 (and lived in the SF Bay area) and/or attended Woodstock.

Re-bar or Lag Screws for a Monkee Hut ?

I've seen some posts on folks using lag screws instead of rebar to slide the pvc arches over. Just wondering what the general consensus is.
If lags are used with, say 1" pvc, what sizes are used ? What length and how much is left above ground ? THANKS !!

Actually, it is efficient. The last test I saw showed a Prius ,used as a generator with an inverter (as posted above) was more efficient than a Honda 2k generator (gas used per watt).

KODIAK TENT in the WIND

Where would the best place be for additional tie-downs to secure a Kodiak flex-bow tent against high winds ?
Would a monkee hut (with tarp) over the tent protect it from "bending in the winds" or would it just beat against it all night ?

ZIGZAG, from what I've read , the lags don't work that well (compared to re-bar) for slipping the pvc over. They definitely work better for tie-downs though.

Re: Double Wide Monkey Hut ??

And why is it you don't want to just extend the length/add an additional piece to the ribs ? This would require a different size tarp but would maintain the MH's "tensegrity".

Re: Anyone have feedback on a Kodiak 10x10 ft tent?

I've been in nylon tents in the wind and they were quite NOISY. Are the canvas tents much (any ?) quieter ? Also, regarding tying the poles to a T-post or staking them down.....does that ruin the "wind dynamics" of the tent being able to bounce/sway with the wind ?
