18’ Studio

18’ Studio

The 18’ “studio”  yurt  is sized to meet the needs of two people.  It has enough room to comfortably fit in a bath tub, kitchenette, sleep space, office and living room space.   It is the perfect space for couples that are looking to live more lightly on the land or just trying to find a way to afford owning a space together.  We also recommend this size to  small families that are on a tight budget and might possibly be moving around a bit before settling down.  This size is also a perfect size for a remote hunting lodge for a small group of sportsmen, provided there is easy access with a truck or four wheeler.

The 18’ yurt studio has become the standard for year round partner living space for people on a budget or prone to  frequent relocating.  They have been set up as Red Tents, and can be used as a bedroom yurt, attached to a larger yurt.  This space also works well as a small classroom or spacious work studio.  It is still fairly portable and easy to set up with two people.
