What is the definition of yurt?

A Yurt is a portable, felt-covered, wood lattice-framed dwelling structure used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia the word "yurt" comes from russia. the mongols call it a "ger" the wood lattice is called khana and is usually in 3-4-5 separate sections, that are tied together with leather cords. ger have solid doors, usually heavilly carved and painted in bright traditionnal colors. the top ring holding the rafts together is called the toono and is sometimes supported by two poles (sometimes not) highly carved and painted. it is used to get the smoke out of the tent, since the mongols keep a hearth in the middle of the ger. it also serves the purpose of getting out the hot air of the tent in summer. the mongols will raise the lower portion of the felt cover to let cold wind in and this movement will push the hot air out of the tent by the toono. there is also a flap to cover the hole in case of bad weather. the round shape of the ger will allow it to withstand heavy winds, when other building would simply be demolished.

What are Adobe bricks made of and how are they made?

Dirt and water can be mixed in a hole in the ground to make adobe bricks. The dirt needs to have clay in it to resist moisture and provide support in the brick, but too much clay will make the bricks brittle and crack as they dry. This problem can be solved by adding sand (or dried grass) to the mix, which are optional ingredients. The dirt and water are mixed to the consistancy that if two balls were made and stuck together, they could be pulled apart with a little bit of effort. The dirt and water mixture is poured into "forms" or molds that provide the brick with its shape as the dirt dries. The bricks should be dropped and tested for strength before using them in a house or big project. When building with the bricks, adobe mortar is required between them to keep them together.
