Hi there!
This is my first post so I hope I do it right!
Calling out to other yurt dwellers: I have a 20' traditional Mongolia ger (yurt) coming in a couple of weeks and am going to make a strawbale and plywood platform. I'm looking for input from others who have made a strawbale platform on tips, tricks, what went right and what you wish you would have done if you did it over... I ordered 12 3/4 inch pine plywood boards (my partner thinks we will need 1 more but on a yurt forum someone else mentioned it took 11.5...) , and have 125 strawbales waiting under tarp. I will be placing the bales inside of a winter pool cover, then the plywood on top. Still open to suggestions for the outer ring of the platform, how to connect the boards securely and really any other input you may have! :)
Also, what are your ingenious space saving tips and tricks? I'll be living in it full time with my partner and our toddler so being tight and organized as possible is a definitely a priority!

P.s. I'm on the south shore of Nova Scotia and would love to connect with others around here who live in yurts!
