First, let us introduce the parts of a yurt. Please check our webpage What are included? for more illustrative introduction. There could be variations in yurt components depending on the model and maker. A typical basic yurt consists of the following parts.
1. Wooden frame
2. Soft coverings
3. Straps: Inner and outer fastening tension belts, straps for attaching the felt and other fabrics.
Assembling a yurt can be quite tricky on your first try. However, after you have done it once, you can do in 3-4 hours. 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.
The following steps are required to set up a yurt.
