I totally agree about your view on the duomid, usable space etc, that's why I wanted to go for a double pole design in the first place. Since I thought they weren't on the market yet, I felt the need to make one myself. Now, I would very much like to make one myself and expect it to give a great amount of satisfaction after completion. Otherwise, I would be very interested in the shelter as well. I think I would be better of speaking price, time and aesthetics if I would just buy one though:)
Thank you very much on the info on the corner seams, the width of all seams and all other sorts of tips on your design. Since the designs are basically identical (except a 6" difference in sizing), this feedback gives an amazing amount of confidence in the design, especially since you've already tested it for over a month.
According to my calculations, the 145cm is exactly the max size I can get with a minimum height of 110 cm, pitched right to the ground. This results in a cuben-height of 132cm, leaving 2" for seams.
Some more questions/feedback as you seem willing to share:
- I can't really see, do you have a zippered front door?
- It seems to me that you did use grommets for the guy-outs, how did you reinforce those sections?
- what material did you use for the cover of the vents?
I am getting pretty psyched to start working on that project!
