...and up it goes

We had a good friend and one of our neighbors over today to get started on the yurt. As usual, we didn't get as far as we'd hoped, but we sure had fun. The majority of the day was spent laughing and never even felt like work. We got as far as the lattice and the front door; tomorrow we must finish because Tuesday, its going to rain!

Opening the lattice comes tightly wound, packed like a giant tootsie roll...

Once open, you start at the opposite side from the door and begin spreading it apart...pushing and pulling.

And when its finally open...

it gets attached to the door.

We have several friends coming out today, because now the precarious work starts. First thing, they put the ring up for the dome and start with the rafters...
