these are pictures showing the raising of my tipi in the forest...

                                                        this is the area i selected to place the tipi upon

              the firepit (Turtle pit!)

                         fitting an air vent to the firepit   

    raking the gravel for the floor was probably the most effort of all, but the
        tiny rocks provide a sound and level footing with excellent drainage

   besides... i put all of my heart into it...
                                to the end!
