    Yes-my use will be outdoors. The tarp will be staked out, but I have seen the wind tear up gear/structures that are not anchored properly.

    Another question- In your opinion, if I lengthen the ridge line out to 14-15'. Do you think I will need to "T" brace the ridge line to keep in rigid and not warp?

    Thanks again for sharing your great design.
    I have a Much larger tent built basically the same way that uses canvas (MUCH Heavier) and its 15 ft long and no issues now after 3 years..
    I guess a lot depends on the quality of wood, how its treated.

    I really like that you used tusks to secure your joints, classic.

    Yeah I suck I didn't take pictures.. That's because while making it I had a redesign idea.
    I think I can make it lighter and more stable.
