Brushing up on my tarp configurations for doing pictures of the Tentsmiths 9×9 and came across a Holden Shelter of Half Pyramid by H.J Holden in 1911. Very similar to a method 2 Pyramid shelter.

The method 1 Pyramid being tied from the point of a tarp. Method 2 from the middle and the second point of tension being the opposing point before the sides are pegged. With the Holden the 2 furthest most corners are pegged first before tensioning the middle of the tarp.

Id like to see which has more room using the same size tarp and whether your sleeping bag has more room sideways to the entrance or longitudinal.
