Hello Franak I have been doing a lot of research myself on building a yurt/Ger from scratch.I plan to build one this fall.Here is the information I have collected thus far.Youtube search yurt wall slats.keyword yurt wall slats.look up Khana for smokerings.Best film I have seen is called Mujaan the craftsmen.Foxfireguild on youtube.I hope you find this information helpful and best of luck.

Books I recommend which I am currently trying to obtain but lack of funds:
Complete Yurt Handbook
Mongolian Cloud Houses
Barefoot architect
Not a yurt but a roundhouse Building a low impact roundhouse
for more permanent yurt structures look up Bill Coperthwaite

I highly recommend Mujaan the craftsman traditional Mongolian ger construction on amazon prime.

I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
