You have much use for a tipi on that side of the pond?  You planning some backcountry rabbit hunting trips?

Okay, so we move out end of this week, which means I had to finish the tipi! I still need to put the stove jack in, but itís basically done. I think it turned out pretty well. Also, after all this work I think Iíll just buy the next one directly from Seek Outside, at $1000 itís probably worth it.

Very nice.  Yeah, Seek Outside and not DIY is nice, too.  Still want to build a smaller one, though.

I think I need a slightly longer center pole.

Also, I forgot to leave seam margin at the peak, so my peak seams are a little funky and it kind of spirals round a center point.  It makes getting the top taut a little challenging.  I'm going to take up some slack and fold down and sew over some extra when I put the stove jack in tonight.

I think a 6" longer pole and that will perk things up a bit. 

Catenary curves seemed to work alright.  I'm generally pleased.  Weighs about 4 lbs before stove jack and center pole.  I'll buy a new center pole in the US when I return.

Yeah thanks, it was a ton of work really.  Although, I did have to learn to sew before doing it, so there was a steep learning curve.

I used a rolled hem foot on the base last night and saved myself a ton of time.  I also installed the stove jack, which I think turned out pretty well.  Excited for elk hunting now! 

The material is a silpoly PU4000, so I hope we'll have some good waterproofness and limited stretch.  I bought a titanium goat wifi stove on here from another member, so I'm excited to see how it transpires.

Still, I'll definitely buy my next tipi and stick to small projects, 1 man tents or tarps in the future.

One advantage is you may find customizations to make after using it.  i.e. more venting, bug door, bathtub floor, wall tie-outs etc.

LOL that was me you bought the stove from. It will work great for your set up. You will probably get too hot if you load the stove up heavy.

Shoot, sorry, I need to start paying more attention.  I forget who I got what from all the time or just names generally.  My bad, thanks a ton again.  I'm REALLY STOKED about the stove!
