Haven't seen any posted here lately. I've gotten it off of ebay before and off of this site http://www.intothewind.com/.

Two nice factors I found on ebay were that the seller offered 9' (or thereabouts) wide pieces and I received several stick on loops with my order. This was helpful making a new floor for my pyramid tent. I had to put a seam on the last floor. The loops help to hold up the floor sides. Might not be anything you need. This was the heavier duty tyvek though, not the kite tyvek, which can also be found.

You can find Tyvek at Lowe's or Home Depot they sell it by the foot or rolls, if theirs a construction site around where you live you can ask them for it and most of the time they will give it to you at no charge, most outfitters sells it, Tyvek is Widely available you shouldn't have any problems finding it.

I find that I can usually get a good price by the foot on eBay.

I think I know what you mean but can you describe "stick on loops?" I have all the Tyvek I need so just would like the stick on loops to hold up the bathtub corners. Any other insightful ways to attach a loop or bungee to the Tyvek ? l'll check your link in the mean time

Maybe I'll use the ring binder hole strengtheners from Staple that look like tough paper/plastic washers?

They came from Ebay, not the into the wind site. I'm pretty sure they can be bought separately, mine were included free. I will look it up for you.

As far as connecting the loops between the shelter and the floor I do not have a good method. I had thought about using toggles but didn't figure out a good idea. There is probably an easy knot to connect a rope between two loops but I do not remember knots very well.

The same seller also makes loops with grommets, but does not appear to have them listed separately. Another seller has tyvek loops with grommets (http://www.ebay.com/itm/250903231600?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649).

I didn't have to sew anything and I used carpet tape to make the bathtub corners.

If you know where any new houses are being built you might score a piece of Tyvek in their dumpsters. Here is link that discusses Tyvek joining to velcro or grommets. I use velcro to connect my tent to my ground cover.
