Our kitset shelter needs to be reasonably simple and quick to construct. Keeping in mind size restrictions, we began exploring the feasibility of pre-assembling the isosceles triangles into pentagons. By leaving one edge unfixed, the pentagon will be able to fold in on itself and fit within the size parameters.
