Complete set of frame connectors for an oval Jurte with 1 roof insert. This is the not quite the same as a 6m Jurte set and an oval expansion set. Takes 2" x 1" wooden batons. The set consists of 10 pairs of angled top and bottom pieces the same as a 6m Jurte and 8 angle-straight pieces.
The frame connectors were developed to allow Jurtes to be erected in market squares in Germany. Each piece is angled to match the roof/side angles of a particular size/shape of Jurte. You build the frame and attach and raise the roof before buttoning on the sides as usual. It is recommended that some guy ropes are also run to either pegs or solid points i.e. trees or posts, for additional security.
2" x 1" wood is a standard size in Germany for a roofing baton. Unfortunately, here in the UK, the standard size is 2" x 1" un-planed which is just a few millimetres too wide. Planed 2" x 1" is available but you may need to have it ordered for you from a timber merchants. You will need to make up 42 batons - 14 base, 14 uprights and 14 top - for a complete Jurte. 28 of these will be 155cm long and 14 will be 160cm long.
