I want a yurt, now what?

Once you have settled on a yurt, you have a few things to consider.

  • First off, you need to decide what size yurt you wish to purchase.  Some people choose to buy two smaller yurts instead of one large yurt (i.e. instead of a 30′ yurt, they will go with a 24′ yurt and a 12′ yurt).

  • Once you have settled on a size, you need to decide if you want a complete yurt package or if you would like to make parts of it yourself.

  • Next, you need to choose the fabric you want your cover to be.  Your choices include a natural canvas, a poly-cotton blend or a material you supply.

  • As you begin to picture your new shelter, decide on how many doors and windows you want.  Will you have fabric windows or framed in glass windows?

  • Research your local building codes to find out if there are any restrictions or guidelines for getting started.
