Do you recommend building a wooden platform when using the bell tent on a semi permanent basis?

The idea of putting a bell tent onto a platform is a clever one as this increases air circulation and ventilation.

In colder climates insulation can also be placed beneath the wooden platform.

It can also be a practical solution making pitching your bell tent and packing it away a cinch without the concern of dead grass having to be cleaned from your groundsheet.

We have a blog post featuring many images of different wooden platform designs here.
