A twelve foot diameter, vs. a ten foot diameter would give this yurt 44 percent more floor space. I decided to keep wall height the same so that I could re-use the existing wall lattice, needing only to add another 6 foot section of wall to bring the circumference up to 37 feet from 31 feet.
I tried to figure out ways to re-use the existing roof parts, but that was not possible. Still, re-using the existing wall parts and door cut down considerably on the total amount of work.
So on to some pictures.
And here, the yurt deployed in the Mojave National preserve. We wanted an open roof for star viewing at night but rigged a table cloth for shade during the day.
