I figured that the smallest size would be lighter and would be strong enough if I had the slats"overlap" enough, and I saw at least 3 sets of plans that used 1/4" thick slats, so I used that size. As it turns out, the flexibility of the thin slats is really good for portability as it allows the yurt wall to be rolled-up rather than split into sections and layed out flat. I thnk 5-6mm is OK, but only if your timber is not prone to breaking, and has natural flexibility in it. A yurt 100% compatible with RT2012.

In 2007, I visited Bill Coperthwaite at his home in northern Maine and fell in love with the only round house I've ever been in that really works. The beauty of it grew directly from the circle itself; Bill didn't try to make it fit a squared-off floorplan: no right angles, and the big spaces (the main living space is about 30 feet in diameter) were simply divided in half or in thirds. People in one portion had privacy but could reach any other part of the building easily via a generous circular "room" that was open all the way around the perimeter. Bill's designs would make a wonderful book (in addition to his classic, A Handmade Life), but I went home wondering how I could combine his ideas with my own favorite material: mud.

Want a Cozy, Affordable Home? Build A Yurt. In 1996, I bought 10 acres in Saranac Lake, N.Y.

Following the death of my father and getting divorced, it seemed a good time to start on my dream. Until I was able to move to Saranac Lake permanently, I worked many hours at a utility company and spent my vacations camping on the land with my two kids. Over the course of those vacations, I cut, stacked, and hauled trees, and put up a shed to store my tools. I also had plenty of time to decide what to build on the land when the time came.
