I use a civil war style a-frame tent. Canvas, heavyweight, fire retardent treated. About 9 feet long, 7 foot headroom below center pole. Army cot on one side, coleman boxes on the other. This is my dressing room, pantry, storm refuge. It's on the East side of the foyer square.
My main tent is a two room cabin model with windows in front room, big foam mattress under two zipped up bags in the back windowless " bedroom". I sleep there mostly. It's on the Northside of the foyer square.
I have a third tent I use as a kitchen, two rooms but one is all screen. My cardtable, chairs, stove and water boxes are there. Guests can stay in the kitchen's back "bedroom". It's on the Southside of the foyer square.
I tarp over the two two-room tents to make a foyer, the solid a-frame blocks to the East. I have my small trailer to the West as a carpeted stage. I have carpet in the foyer and under the floorless a-frame and under the screen room. The bedrooms are closed up. I have some small area rugs in there. I've been working on getting carpets this year. Last year it was tents.
I know 3 tents for one guy seems a lot, but my footprint is only 30 foot square, and I have shade, and comfort.
Burning Man is an exercise—indeed, a challenge—in balancing cooperation, self-reliance, individual expression, and creative collaboration in the formation of an artistic community. E. Britannica
