Biggest accomplishment this break: getting a normal sleep schedule. Heading to upstate New York with Josh, Laura, and Dan for a few days must have allowed their excellent sleep habits to rub off on me.
After that, I spent three straight days at MITERS working on the yurt:
I ripped a few long pine boards (crufted) into strips using the EC table saw, then biked them over to MITERS. (Day 1)
I measured the actual dimensions to get an idea of how to sew the cover. If I was more legitimate, I'd be using felted yak hair. I have no excuse with all the yak shaving I manage to do!
In lieu of that, it'll be some bolts of crufted linen and perhaps a tarp for waterproofing.
Still need to varnish everything.
