<font color="red">'''The 10 foot Hexayurt is like the standard Happy Hour Rides Again! 8' hexayurt, with the wall height increased by 2 feet to make more livable headroom [http:/27/sphotos14.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs642.snc4/60205_463122598071_546703071_6512076_6776629_n.jpg].

If you are 6 feet tall or taller, and disdain stooping your mighty head, you might consider increasing height by 3 feet by adding 4 more panels. Perhaps this can be called the '''Mark III.''' There are no pictures available of this design, but you can extrapolate easily off of the Mark II PDF below. The major drawback to this design is that it will not have an efficient shipping footprint--3 foot panel segments will not stack nicely in your 4'x8' stack, but you might bundle them in a separate stack that's 3'x8'.

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 [http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs642.snc4/60205_463122598071_546703071_6512076_6776629_n.jpg 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 nowthe ''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): [[http://www.appropedia.org/Hexayurt_Camp_Danger_two_part_folding#Other_ShapesFile:Danger_H15_Hexayurt_instructional_2013.2C_Increased_Height 10' hexayurt aka Mark IIpdf] as ]   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 semilot of (and can get at homo depot) is the foil tape-folding hexayurt using Camp-Danger Hingesin 3" width:356 feet total 3" foilfor sealing the edges of the panelsThen to "shade" the permanent Danger hinges, you'll need210 feet of 6" foil OR 420 of 3" foil tape!
