24’ Homestead

The 24’ homestead offers similar benefits to the 20’ yurt, as it is a nice spacious yurt that would be ideal for a family to share, or be used as a nice retreat center.  Several people can do yoga in the 24’ yurt, and several people could share an office. We built one in our home, and it makes a great spacious community kitchen.  The 24’ leaves room for more spaces throughout the perimeter of the yurt and those spaces are roomier than the 20’ yurt.
