    Tyvek Rainfly

    Interested in a Tyvek rainfly...tarp....ground cover. Tired of hunting for pieces from a construction site, with that stiff type of home wrap Tyvek.
    Check out this site:




    Pretty much has it all ....prices are very reasonable also.

    I get mine from construction sites. Go ask one of the construction workers for some Tyvek. Usually they will cut off as much as you need from a roll.

    Just make sure you ask the guys on the job, not the boss...that stuff is expensive, so the guy who actually has to pay for it might be less willing

    You can get the soft structure Tyvek (kite Tyvek) from the Materials Concepts site for 49.00 for a 10 yard (60" wide) roll. I have been meaning to pick some up and try it out.

    EDIT:
    I get my Tyvek from construction sites. I have not had to pay for any yet. A no-sew Tyvek tarp is on my DIY list.
