Sewing the canvas was both fun and terrifying. We ordered 150 yards of canvas from Traders of Tamerlane (http://www.tradersoftamerlane.com/) who shipped it to us on two 3-foot rolls.
We used an intense industrial sewing machine to sew the canvas. Never before have I seen a sewing machine with half a horse’s worth of power. I was afraid of sewing my fingers to our walls, so I was thankful that Mike did all the sewing.
It took a couple week of sewing to get it all sewn together.
Mike needed a break from sewing, so he and a friend of ours decided to install our stove (a 400kg Rayburn).
The yurt started to feel like a reality once the canvas was up.
