Why Buy A Rainier Yurt?

Reason #17: Experience

Rainier’s roots go back to the Alaskan Gold Rush. We were founded in 1896 as Puget Sound Tent & Awning, merged with Seattle Tent & Awning in 1985 and subsequently changed our name to Rainier Industries. With the acquisition of Nesting Bird Yurts in 2004, we added the experience of a company that first built yurts for the Israel family in 1972. We are the only yurt supplier that has been satisfying customers for over 115 years!

Our doors are full sized 36” X 80” and built with thermal insulated Low-E, double pane glass windows - not single pane Plexiglas that scratches easily and yellows over time. We have a variety of door choices, including: solid wood doors for privacy, our popular half-light door, and full light doors to maximize your view and natural lighting. We offer beautiful French door sets as well.

Reason #13: Eagle Blocks for Higher Snow Loads

Rainier yurts can withstand the most severe conditions by adding some of our innovative upgrades. Ring-to-Rafter Clips securely bond the rafters to the compression ring to prevent rafter rotation and increase vertical shear loads; Eagle Blocks between rafters enhance rafter strength and stabilize the roof system. Vertical posts at rafter ends add to the load capacity of the lattice wall.

Reason #3: The Tallest Walls in The Industry

Our Eagle yurts are designed with 7’4” tall walls as a standard item at no additional cost! Everyone else stops at 7 feet... and charges you for an "upgrade". Rainier yurts have a spacious and open feeling. This design also allows for full height doors that are ADA accessible for handicapped users.

Reason #1: Snow Load Engineering

Rainier yurts are built tough! They are engineered to meet the International Building Code and feature the thickest, strongest lattice in the industry. We utilize Machine Stress Rated (MSR) Douglas Fir in our rafters with a 2,400 rating in bending stress – 40% stronger than standard fir. No other yurt will stand up to the snow and wind conditions like a Rainier yurt!
