The panels I have are R-Max and according to their website there is a manufacturing plant in Dallas, so you should be able to get some there...call a "real" lumberyard, one that supplies builders not DIYers, that's how I got mine because Home Depot and Lowes don't carry the good ones here :)sambojones wrote:has anyone here been able to get away with using 3/4" boards? I've read through the thread and I've seen the 1/2" get shot down and after seeing/feeling it at home depot the 1/2" does seem pretty flimsy, but the 3/4" feels much much more rigid and sturdy. I know that the 1" is ideal but I can't seem to get any around the dfw area. I checked with lowes and home depot and they both told me the producer of the boards DOW industrial won't ship the 1" or thicker boards to our area for whatever reason:o. Any opinions or insights would be greatly appreciated. :D
I'll be putting up my yurt for the second time this weekend, it will be interesting to see how long it takes to put up. When I took it down a couple weeks ago, I left the walls in 3 pieces and the roof in six pieces, like jkisha recommends. I was in a hurry and taking it down by myself, and it only took me 20 minutes - piece of cake! This may not work on the playa if it's real windy, but I cut the roof from the inside (leaving the tape holding the roof to the walls attached) and folded out the roof pieces like peeling an orange, then cut around the perimeter of the top of the walls, cut three side walls, folded it all up, done. With 2 people it probably could have been done in 10 minutes.
