Can one (1) person put up a dome/yurt ? say a 30′ or what?
Yes, but it requires strength and is not recommended especially the first time. I have put up a 30′ by myself (140 lb.) but it was quite a workout and I had put it up with help before. The 30′ is our hardest dome to put up (you should have two strong people to help you put it up). The smaller domes are much easier. The 18′ is our next toughest dome to put up. The reason these two are hardest is to make them strong against the wind. After a dome has been put up once it is quite a bit easier the next time. The reason for this is that the covering gets stretched out and the poles take a slight set.
