Today we depart from the high brow philosophizing on reenactment for some pragmatic, hard resources which everyone can use without regard for the subjectivity of best practices or proper procedure. In my previous rendition of this series, I drew the drawings on graph paper with a pencil and pen. Revisiting the project I have upgraded to a basic digital drawing platform called LibreCAD. I am not an engineer, architect, or qualified technical designer and I don’t even play one on TV. They say you don’t know what you don’t know, so I can’t even begin to fathom what these drawings are missing if they were professionally designed. But no one is building buildings based on my design, that’s not their intent. They are technical drawings in feel and style to provide context and perspective on a subject some have difficulty visualizing, especially those new to reenacting and who don’t have much experience with what tents and the space in them look like.Continue reading “Tent Floor Plans: Tentsmiths Conical Tents”
