Yurt Living

GREAT RM WO ARTwebMaybe you’re looking to add a guest house or mother-in-law apartment to your property, or for an affordable housing alternative for your vacation property. There are no limits to the possible uses for yurts, and there is no doubt that people love living in yurts.

Many people choose to live in yurts because they love feeling connected to nature. Yurts are an environmentally friendly structure, constructed on a platform so that they leave minimal impact on the land.

With our years of experience helping happy yurt owners make a yurt a home, we are happy to share what we’ve learned. We hope this is a helpful resource to anyone considering “the yurt life!”

Most of this comes from our yurt blog, which we update (about) once a week. Come back soon to read more!
