I've noticed a tendency for over-engineering by forum members but this might be the winner!  The disaster proof lantern hanger.

Well, you've don the hard part--except for lashing it. Getting a rope up there now will be a bit of a fiddle.

I was taught to erect the frame starting with a tripod. Lash three poles together--two will be the door frame and the third will be the backpole. Leave about twenty or thirty feet of rope hanging from the lashing. Using the rope, pull the tripod up onto the door frame poles, then swing the back pole out. Start laying the rest of the poles on, making a turn with the rope after each one. Tie the fag end of the rope off to a pole and your frame is secure and strong enough to climb when you put the cover on. I've done this single-handed, but it's much easier with two people.

Two additional poles, not lashed, control the wind flaps at the top.

The rope can also be left hanging in the center of the teepee to hang a lantern from, but e careful you don't set it on fire!

If you teepee doesn't have a smoke or dew liner--a piece of fabric that goes up about 1/3 of the way on the inside of the poles, have one made. It will cause an updraft in the teepee to draw the smoke out through the flaps, while keeping the air still at the floor. You can use the poles on the flaps to adjust them so they take max. advantage of the breeze to help draw, too.

Spent a few summers of my youth living in teepees on the Oregon High Desert. Very comfy and storm-proof if set up properly.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Modern tent makers have yet to make a tent to beat this design. Wind proof and heated and with a wood fire for cooking
How many people can sleep in these?

Thx Timm u just the won the frame without knowing it lol. U seem to know what ur talking about I have all the inside guts too. On utube there seems to be lots of ways to set up the poles. More pics as time allows. 
im using a kerosene heater as this is so small a tipi. Two cots , table + chaired. Too old to fit in the floor 
Yes, that is a good technique.  We did it in Boy Scouts in the early 60's over our dining table lashed together with lodge poles.  My brother is sitting front and center...
I think that was a 228D, that belonged to our asst. SM hanging over the table.
