Kazakhstan style yurt making.It's different from Mongolian version it shows how walls our steambent using steambox.Similiar to Ben laws steambox if you've seen the woodland way.Except ben law uses clay to seal ends.

If your looking for traditional rather than modern you might want to use the proper name yurt is modern, the name you want is Ger. Ger is what is used for the traditional felt lined huts, while yurt tends to be the modern canvas coverings.

If your hunting for Ger, knowing the right name to look the up will help.

Thank you for the imput it's good to get the ideas flowing and see what others think.Do you intelligent intellectuals recall ben laws roundhouse timberframing dvd? Where he is steam bending the logs.I'm wondering if this will work for the walls.Also for the circle smokehole piece.Mujaan just soaks them in a stream bend and bends them.spend the 7.99 for mujaan the craftsmen it's worth it.Maybe we can get a copy sent to the labs?Well gota finish boiling this rice for lunch then it's off to herd the sheep.

I agree that what passes for a "modern yurt" is heavy on artificial materials. Friends of mine were living in one and it used a lot of bubble wrap (foil sandwiching 2 layers of bubble wrap was the ceiling insulation) and artificial fabrics as the cover. It was't that old, but you could see the wear on it. Traditional gers could be rebuilt/repaired/renewed as they succumbed to nature's assaults.
