All our yurts are named for birds, and we call this one “The Sparrow” because it’s small, but strong. Available in 12′ and 14′ diameters.

Built with the same quality as our full sized models, this yurt is designed to be perfect for temporary locations, like campsites.

We recommend installing the Sparrow on a platform for longer-term use. Free plans, including a bill of materials, are available for the platform design.

Both sizes feature a quality frame, a door with a full-light window, and a one piece cover that includes three windows with weather flaps.


  • Hand crafted Douglas Fir frame and door with window

    For Normandy Park…A pastor’s backyard study…What would be the approximate total cost not including electrical and furnishings? Stove and foundation costs?

    These look awesome! Curious about temperature- it gets pretty hot and muggy in the summer here. I assume you couldn’t use a window AC, but how is the overall ventilation?

      Great question! This is why we recommend the opening and adjustable yurt dome to everyone 🙂 The Sparrow model has slightly more limited options for doors and windows than our larger yurt models, but those combined with insulation, make a huge difference to the temperature in all seasons. Dana will be in touch to discuss with you!

    Hi, I’m serious considering about possible getting one of those cheap affordable Yurt where I can live off the grid all year around with all 4 seasons. Any suggestions/advice will be great! I don’t need anything fancy just simply like a home with woodstove and electrical maybe connected to Solar something like that. Possible a small AC that will works? Please let me know.

    I am thinking of buying some land south of Austin Texas. I live half the year in Austin and half in Woodstock NY I built a tiny house artist studio and I ran out of funds and the zoning has change anyway I have to sell it. But I did think about buying a yurt next. So can you put real window in yours and have fabric over the zig zag on the inside so to hide the cross bars and since it is Texas AC hum thanks
