Assemble your Yurt

Assembling a yurt can be quite tricky on your first try. However, after you have done it once, it is something you can do in less than an hour. It is better to have two or three people to help with assembly of an average-sized yurt. For a yurt of ten or more wall segments you will need more people. For yurts with four wall segments, two people will be enough.

Following are the steps required to assemble a painted or carved yurt. Instructions for assembling a travel yurt are included with the yurt itself.

Unfold the lattice walls and interlock them to form a circle. Leave an open space for the door, making sure that this opening is the same size as the door and is located where you wish the door to be. Adjust the walls such a way that the extremes of the walls squeeze into each other. Put the crown inside the wall circle upside down and attach the two pillars tightly. You will need two or three people to do this for an average-sized yurt.
Adjust the height of the walls so they are at the same level as the top of the door. In doing so, make sure that the walls form an exact circle. The upper edge of the walls should all be at the same level.

Attach the inside cover through the sticks of the yurt.

Place the waterproof canvas sheets on the yurt. Overlap the sheets slightly where they meet. As with the felt roof segments, there are two semicircular waterproof canvas sheets, one with a space left for the crown that goes over the side of the yurt with the door.
