TIPI BOTTOM OF WOOD CHUNKS
This is the simplest and most cost-effective variant for a tipi floor.
On wood chips can sit comfortably and sleep. They serve as isolation in every season. Make sure that you buy wood chips without bark! Bark chips are more suitable for mulching for the garden and not recommended because of the high proportion of resin as Tipiboden. The resin quickly softens on warm days and sticks to shoes and clothing. Therefore we only use wood chips without bark.
First, an air-permeable weed fleece is laid as a base, then evenly distributed over a generous layer of wood chips. We pull the weed fleece and the wood chips about 20-30cm beyond the edge of the tipi. This facilitates care and mowing around the teepee. It is also advisable to design the entrance generously with wood chips. An additional stone slab at the entrance prevents in continuous wet weather that no puddle forms in front of the tepee.
TIPI - WOODEN FLOOR
The multi-part floor is put together and screwed together. It does not extend beyond the edge of the tipi and is therefore very discreet. In the middle part of the floor can be taken out for a fireplace. The wooden floor should only be laid on a flat floor surface, otherwise elaborate balancing with strips is necessary. A wooden floor is a luxury variant and looks very well maintained.
