Buying hexayurt boards (polyisocyanurate) in Reno

Postby Razmacaz » Tue Jun 26, 2012 2:29 pm

Hello!

We (SuckMyRock!) camp) are planning to make two hexayurts for our camp and are looking to pre-order the 24 boards (along with everything else, but we have sourced the tape etc). To make this difficult for ourselves we are coming from London and only arriving in Reno on the morning of Saturday August 25th (planning to leave in the afternoon of August 26th).

Can someone advise where we could get the boards in Reno on the Saturday? We have transport, construction crew and money but I'm finding it hard to find somewhere to order the boards online.

Also we are hoping that we can use the space outside the lockup that we use to make these, or even the inside of the van BUT if anyone can recommend anywhere that we might be able to use for a few hours for some hardcore making and doing that would be muchly appreciated.

Thanks all, can't wait.

I'd assume bLOWES.COM would have these available to preorder, also I live in Fernley which is the gate way to the playa from the Reno area. Your group is welcome to construct in my driveway which is approx. 3 miles from bLowes where you would pick up your provisions.

Keep in mind, big box stores can/will deliver.

When I built my Yurt I called Home Depot and said "I need 12 of SKU 3462345, 2 of SKU 345646, delivered to 123 Anystreet."

Then they did.

Hi Nipple! We need to pick it up as we only have a casino hotel address, I reckon this is the stuff though:

Huh, most of us think of Fernley as the gateway to the closest NAPA.
