All the yurt's a stage...

And Mark and I were merely players, called in to improve the look of this one here in California.

Here are the various stages. 

- Creating a stone foundation (from scraps and leftovers) for supporting the new deck and stairs we would be building. 

- The fabricating work,  essentially cutting and dressing huge steps from the dry stone academy granite material

- Then supporting exterior dry stonework, stacked decoratively up from grade to the underside of platform slabs
- And finally adding three heavy basalt columns for balance and to give some architectural accent.

Having now successfully circled half of it with stone, exiting and reentering the yurt has a whole new 'atmosphere' to it
