MATERIALS 8' Hexayurt Classic Construction worksheet All lengths are in feet unless otherwise marked 1 Number of 8'

hexayurts to build 12 Sheets of 4' x 8' board material required

700 feet of tape per hexayurt see the Tape Calculator worksheet in this spreadsheet for the de 4 Number of 60 yard rolls of tape required to do this, just minimally! Consider hav a mix of 1/2 3" tape and 1/2 6" tape works ok

You'll need more tape for each time you assemble your hexayurt If you are making a semi-folding hexayurt, you need far less tape with each yurt-raising (see If you use tape anchors, you will need 2/3rds of a 6" roll of tape with each yurt-raising

You will need about 3/4 of a roll of 6" tape for the next time you pop up your hexayurt, for the tape ring and tape- seal to the tarp, and the roof and wall halves going together. You'll need another 3/4 of a roll if you are using tape anchors.
