Here’s my concern though: when you look at pictures of military camps, with lots of tents, most are round! It would be better (?) to have mostly round tents, with fewer of these double bell sort. Or find some other pictures, with more rectangular and double bell tents.
Anyway, here’s the layout, with rectangles for the beds and people (click to download the pdf) :
This tent style has had several door concepts:
- One 2m wide door on the long side
- Doors at each short end and in line with the poles on the long side
- A 2m wide door on each of the long sides
I like option 3 the best. It means that you can open the whole tent to catch the breezes and you can put it into tourney mode with the doors up as verandah’s for extra shade.
The sewing layout:
And the detailed measurements used to make the shapes. We usually measure one piece with these measurements and then use that piece as a template for the others. The wall pieces have a 4omm sewing allowance, with 100mm for the eave.
