10' {{Hexayurt aka Mark IIheader}}
<font color="red">'''The 10' Hexayurt is the standard Happy Hour Rides Again! 8' hexayurt, with the wall height increased by 2' to make more livable headroom/27/14. It requires 3 more panels than Wednesday the 8' 27th (which requires 12of burn-week), 1-4 pm, at Yurtopia, 9:30 and and E.) It has also been called Serving: Gin and Tonics, the Official Drink of the '''Mark IIHexayurt Project. More beverages,schwag, costumes, and snacks welcome. Clothing optional; Silver or Hexagonal Costumes receive bonus points!''' which sounds better than 10' Hexayurt.</font>
'''This page is under construction.''' For now, see [ 10' hexayurt aka Mark II] as a semi-folding hexayurt using Camp-Danger Hinges.
More '''The H15 Hexayurt''' aka '''The 10' Hexayurt'''<br /> <center>{{#widget:YouTube|id=znGR5AXY3AM}}</center><br /><br />The H15 Hexayurt is like the standard 8' hexayurt, with the wall height increased by 2 feet to comemake more livable headroom []. The lowest point is 6 feet tall, the peak of the roof is 10 feet. This makes your entryway a better size for the average person's height. It requires 3 more panels than the 8' hexayurt (which requires 12 panels), and so it has been re-named the "H15." It has also been called the '''Mark II,''' which sounds more inspiring than either other name. If you're interested in having better height at your entryway, but don't want to spend too much more money on panels, try the [[Hexayurt H13]], which is a trickier design but very elegant, especially if a portion of your living space is used for sleeping and doesn't require standing room.<br /><br />[[File:IMG_4699.JPG]]<br />Avobe: an H15 at Burning Man, ugly truck and bike shown included for scale. Notice that a couple of roof panels have logos showing (oops), but that the tape- hinges are all covered with 6" foil tape to make them last even after baking in the desert sun for many years of Burning Man.  <br /><br />Given a choice between the H13 and H15, the H15 is more structurally sound, given that your tape-ring is not cut into with the addition of the door, and it's symmetrical on all axes. The roof hinges are the same as the classic 8' hexayurt, each of the 6 wall panels have the 2' addition either hinged on, or taped on once you hit playa. <br /><br />It would appear H15's have survived [ at Burning Man], and were playa tested in the nasty 2012 winds. Even the H15's made with 1" thick panels stood solidly. FYI, Julie Danger camps in an H15 made with 1" thick panels...but really, 1.5 thick panels would be better for this increased height. For the ''best'' structural stability, you would stagger the 2' addition top and bottom when you build the walls, and it would still ship in the 4'x8' stack. However, that's a lot of extra on-playa work that no one is willing to do...if you can ship and store the yurt in a 6x8' stack, definitely stagger each wall section. If you're going to be lazy and make 4 pre-folded wall sections, be sure that your 2x8' wall additions are staggered (see PDF 'front and back view').<br /><br /> '''Follow this PDF''' the successfully playa tested H15, with 4 wall sections (most common version seen on-playa): [[]]   consider this for tape requirements:100 feet total 3" bifilbut I'd skip ordering 3" for just 100 feet, maybe stick w/ 6" all the way 480 feet total 6" bifil......but you'll need another 120 or so feet every time you put up the yurt  The one you'll need a lot of (and can get at homo depot) is the foil tape-- in 3" width:356 feet total 3" foilfor sealing the edges of the panels. Then to "shade" the permanent Danger hinges, you'll need210 feet of 6" foil OR 420 of 3" foil tape
