If I was going to build a cabin, I’d start with the land. Then would come a yurt, relatively inexpensive, extremely low impact, and a great way to get to know the shifting scape of light and weather and season. Yurts, of course, were invented in Mongola, where their proper name is “ger” (“yurt” is Russian), and in this video you could see the local experts at work, putting up an amazing shelter in just over an hour (compressed to two minutes in this time lapse). Very cool.

Declination is other places, other spaces, and the things that happen there.

    I’ve had passengers on river trips who take longer to put a 2-person tent. Seriously.
