I can't remember where I saw it but it was a house that was basicly a roof and floor. The walls where canvas an made to be opened up during dry weather. I would think you'd need a tropical climate to live in one but it might work as a vacation house in other areas.
I have had this bookmarked for awhile. It is kind of the king of tent living in my opinion. Even after spending so much time living in a yurt for the past year and a half.http://www.actionafrica.com/pictures.htmChristina
I found the article on the Tent House, designed by Jeff Milstein. It was in Popular Science, June 1975, pp 86-88. The article has a drawing with some of the dimensions but it isn't a full construction drawing and doesn't include the pattern for the tent. For that you had to order the plans, which cost all of $5. I don't know if they're still available from Popular Science.
i just want to ask if where did you find that article and what is the title of that article?________________Event tent
Karen, thanks for posting this. Pox, thanks for providing the link to the article. This really got me thinking! I think having drop-down decks on both sides would be great. On one side, you would have a canvas walled tent and on the other a canvas roofed screen room. The center "shed" could have a peak roof and the eaves could overlap the canvas roofs of the "tent" sections. The shed section could have the woodstove, as having the stovepipe protrude from the solid roof would be more weather tight. Pritch
A yurt is a portable, felt-covered, wood lattice-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.
