Teepee for Off-Grid living in the Great White North.
We built this 15' diameter, 15' tall Teepee on the North shore of Lake Superior using the Plains Indians Teepee pattern below. We needed about 15, 20' Spruce poles that we easily found on our property where the trees were growing too close together. It took about a day to strip the poles, set them up, cut the canvas (recycled) and have everything hoisted to enjoy ! We will add a second layer of canvas to the interior and add some mosquito netting at the openings so that we can sleep over. Stay tuned. More photos to come .....
