The Spring Scrub down.

After contemplating buying a new cover to replace the rather manky existing one, I decided to risk it and use neat bleach in a trigger bottle, a dish brush and some water. I think it worked rather well. Still a long way to go but it's far from being hard work.

Humming Yurt

Windy today, windy enough for me to realise that using flat webbing as ties for the crown cover is a really bad idea. Flat straps hum and drum against the roof, so I've had to go all the way round and throw lumps of wood on the roof to keep the straps from humming interesting chords.

Also, I am trialling the idea of putting ex-storage heater bricks on top of the woodburner and inside the oven as a base. The idea being that they will release the heat once the fire has gone out and keep things warmer for a little bit longer though the night. A nice hot one makes a brilliant foot warmer.
