Hi I hope this is in the right place if its not i'm sorry
We have a mongolian yurt that we managed to build a base for and get up in september/ october time can't remember exactly when now, time doesn't keep track of me very well. All seemed to be ok after much stress of getting to that point and we were just waiting for our stove to be made by julian so we could get in properly but as the law of sod always goes a couple of days before christmas we had gales and the yurt shifted about a foot in one side but fortunately didn't fall off its base because of the bits of wood we'd screwed down around the outside as we were afraid of it falling off being our first time with a yurt. Anyway we panicked added about 100m of rope to it to lash it down and then when the wind dropped roped in everyone on hand to get it put back on kilta, then put some more blocks on on the inside of the lattice work this time to try and reassure us this couldn't happen again. We were good and back on track or so we thought but today/ last night we had high winds again and now the bottom hasn't shifted but the top seems to be leaning abit (the door isn't vertical). Everythings holding where it is and when the winds drop we will shove it back in line again but what I want to ask is has this happened to anyone else before with any kind of yurt/ ger/ bender and if so could you possibly give us some advice of what you did to stop it happening or if its down to us putting it up wrong (we followed the instruction manual that came with it). Sorry if we are being a complete pair of muppets but we would really appreciate the help if anyone can offer us any.
Would actually love to hear from anyone who has had a yurt of any kind with experiences, tips etc as we've both scoured the internet looking for information and stories both before we took the plunge and after but I'm guessing if you're trying to fly under the radar you don't really publicise what you are doing so the majority of what we found was from abroad.
Hope no one else is blowing away in the wind and that the winds will bugger off soon
