Once the wall was up, we were able to figure out that we needed 32 poles for the roof. Mike built a tono (the centre ring) to hold everything together. He made a template, planed some planks of birch, and started cutting.
He laminated and doweled three layers of birch together for strength.
After a bit of grief, Mike drilled holes at an angle of thirty-something degrees.
The tono was sanded and oiled.
We started to assemble the roof.
With help from friends, we got the whole thing up.
Up next: Building a platform.
