The 10 Foot Hexayurt aka The Mark II aka the H15

The 10 foot Hexayurt is like the standard 8' hexayurt, with the wall height increased by 2 feet to make more livable headroom [1]. 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.

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'.

This page is under construction. For now, see 10' hexayurt aka Mark II as a semi-folding hexayurt using Camp-Danger Hinges.
