I would imagine since you don't have a floor, placement of the tent would be important to keep water out of the inside of the tent. You could also easily add a floor as a seperate piece.
I agree the doors might be drafty, but I think if I can figure out a way to secure them it will be tollarable.

I may have to make one of these in woodland, since I'm old school.

CAMOEDTJ wrote:first time posting on the board as well, FAST1 i made the same thing you made, only i added a few extras to it.i added on some side pullouts which you can see on the right side of the pyramiddle. pullouts helped a lot when me and my brother inlaw had a storm blow through at 2am packing 50 mph winds. the tent stood tall with out a hitch. unfortunatley we baild cause of all the trees crashing down around us. and i added a stove jack as well. that makes all the difference in the world. we kicked back cooked some samon fillets in foil on the little wood burner while all hell cut loose out side.
my pyramiddle stands almost 8ft tall. it looks exactly lik yours inside and the front has doors as well which can be closed off with velcro i stitched on the length of the door, i will say that it supriesd me with its ability to shed driving rains and wind with out a hitch, but when setting up you need to pay close attention to wind direction to be safe and effective especially with a live hot stove inside.
