Do you have plans on how to build a deck?

Yes, we do have deck plans that we will be happy to send, but we recommend that you check your local building codes for guidelines.

Can two yurts be joined together?

Yes, there are a variety of ways to accomplish this but the basic way is to build the yurt platforms at the same height and connect them with a deck.  A cover of any kind can connect the spaces or just leave them open and get a constant reminder that you live partially outside.

Will my yurt require a building permit?

Building code requirements vary from place to place so it is best to check with your local authorities prior to your yurt purchase.

If you live in a rural area, your yurt may not need to be permitted.

  • Yurts are classified by permitting authorities in several different ways, including as a permanent structure or a temporary structure.

  • They may also be viewed as an out building much like a garage or storage building.
