Hello everyone,
In response to 56 interest in another thread (link ) I attach pictures and details of a two-man pup tent I made myself.

Materials, costs, prices:
The tent-like fabric made with about 50 g to silaniilon from the Nahalat Binyamin Bathory-so-called "parachutes" water-repellent fabric (called "store" Reuben and Rahman was on the north side of the street), it was something like $ 27 per meter (width 1.60 meter fabric I think).
The materials cost a little less than $ 400, and were invested in aggregate approximately 5 working days.
Tips on sewing Forum of light backpacking, especially the type of stitches which I have used for example here.
The General form of pup tent, but unlike the Ranger military tents sleep perpendicular to the spindle poles as on Haven tarp of six moon designs.

While use a tent found out that aacama and more stable if the Poles (walking sticks) to get involved outside the tent (as in tarp just)
Anchor points sewn polypropylene Strip (shutter strap)
(All stitches used synthetic sewing thread.
Width 1.5 m tent, 2.7 m length, maximum height, like 1.15. The tent pegs attached to every corner in the middle of a rib, and the two upper corners-tied to rods and then walk stretch.

Sealant was done by a mix of turpentine and transparent silicone sticky icky cream to dry the fabric mix. the ratio of (turpentine) 7 (silicone) 3. A very long drying time-recommend to dry (shaoal quit and tense as he supposed to stand) at least three days.

Unfortunately (or lucky?) we didn't get a chance to sleep right. So no storm resistance. Drizzle that lasted (intermittently) night and day didn't bother him.

There was a problem of condensation on the inside of the tent we couldn't fix it, but I understand that this is a general problem of single wall shelters?

In terms of durability in wind-there is one with a lot of spirit, and there was a problem. It's hard for me to evaluate durability compared to conventional tent.
In recent years we have traveled with 2 p marmot limelight, and terrible storms in three continents. But a breeze to explain not move into the tent too.

The weight of the whole thing, including the same material ground sheet, including tensile wires and stakes got a little less than a pound, 950 Gr.

The lessons learned are mainly required more extensive experience in sewing and sewing Fabrics specifically to get a tent, and requires meticulous planning and of the sector or the tent out crooked and not stretched correctly-point principle in silaniilon, which is slightly elastic fabric.

Attach picture-not amazing, but it's there-latest ...

Any further question please feel free to post and answer best.

But excellent for sealing seams rather thinner and turpentine
And faster drying.
Siliniilon very difficult to sew if done, success

Respect,

All cuts except in accordance with the specific needs after accumulated experience exploring always laudable.

About the thicken according the image seems to have no Windows, ventilation and condensation. In the tents of two layers has a layer of air between the Interior to exterior so prevent condensation.
If you're sewing it all alone so you won't have a problem to add ventilation tunnel, something like that:
Both sides up to constant airflow and can breath warm air out.
