Real Tent: Flooring, AC and more…

I was recently doing a walk through at Strathmore Mansion, which is a venue that I love, and I stumbled upon the skeleton of a big tent that was in the process of being taken down. I couldn’t help but snap a few pics to better show you the nuts and bolts of all this tent mumbo jumbo I’ve been spewing at you! This tent was done by the wonderful Sugarplum Tent Company. If I had to hazard a guess, I would say it was 140 feet by 50 feet, a white topped Navitrac frame tent. By the time I got there, the side walls were down but the doors were still up. It was so big, I had to take two photos to capture it.

Four huge AC units were placed out from the interior of the tent:

I would guess that this was the main entrance to the tent, and they added a slight ramp to accommodate the grade in the ground:

The main entrance was not wheelchair accessible, so this side ramp and door was used:

Kind of fun to look at tents from this perspective. I hope you enjoyed all my awesome iPhone photos.
