14 people, a day and a half, and lo! A yurt arises!
Also prep work on "foundation".
Foundation for yurt is gravel...

Picking up yurt kit from Pacific Yurts (it fit great on a Santana 22 sailboat trailer)
Now we add the 7/8 plywood. Boy, are they heavy!
Believe it or not, the doors are almost the first things up

Karen's mom comes to visit
Mylar/bubble insulation installed on top

Plexiglass skylight installation
End of day 1: all but side walls.
