Tipi Design

Hey Guys and Gals, I've been a long time lurker on here, but this is my first post. I am looking at building some tipi's and just wanted some of your opinions, for those of you that have used the various types of tipi's. If you could have a custom tipi made, to your specifications, what would you consider the top priority? (i.e. extra tie outs, certain height, etc.) Again, think of anything that you wish did or did not come on your existing tipi, and any changes you would make. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi, Tiong! Thanks for joining our discussions! I hope you'll think about going over to the "introduce yourself" part of the forums and tell us about yourself.

I wonder what kind of tipi you are interested in? Traditional/historical tipis with traditional materials, or modern ones made of nylon or some other higher end fabric? I don't have tipi experience myself (wish I did), but maybe someone else with the experience you are interested in will get excited and share some.
