Here are the rest, we kinda rushed through putting up the canvas... it was starting to rain. So I forgot to take pictures of that part.

Interesting. I do a couple of things differently. Different knot and I lift the poles in a different way. I got my info from the book by the Laubins.

The title brought me into this thread. I'm familiar with the erection tipi. Not as big as this but there's a party inside.
