The white roof lining Gets fixed to the frame first. After that, the felt cover is applied to the walls first and then to the roof. Historically, the then completely unwashed felt also served as rain protection. Today an impregnated canvas is normally placed over it. To protect better against the rainy european climate, we replace this by a synthetically coated cloth in our imported yurts. For good looks, a white cotton cover is placed on top of everything, which may have blue patterns along the edges. All those layers are bound to the wooden frame at strategic points.
Two or three straps are pulled over the cover around the circle of the walls, starting at the sides of the door. They are meant to keep the wind from blowing under the cloth. In addition, they support the stabilizing function of the inner straps.
Finally, the suqare cover gets spanned over the crown. The ropes from three corners are fixed with the straps, and may also be weighted if the wind requires it. The fourth end serves as an opening mechanism. It is pulled to the rear end of the yurt to open the crown, and forward to the door to close it.
After installing the curtains along the inside of the walls and moving all pieces of furniture to their final position the yurt is ready for its occupants.
