While at the Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, Colorado I had the opportunity to see first hand the Freedom Yurt Cabins that I covered here on the Tiny House Blog a couple of months ago. You can read the post here.
It was fun to see first hand the quality and build of this unique hard wall yurt. I also had the chance to get to know the father and son team behind this new tiny house option. Richard Barry is the President and CEO of the company and his son Josh is Co-General Manager and Sales Manager.
I am extremely impressed both with the quality of the construction, the ease of building the yurt and the fact that two or three people could have this fully assembled in a couple of days. The price also seems right on and will open up this type of housing for many more people.
I’m also impressed with the idea that this is still a transportable home and does not need to be considered a permanent dwelling and can be taken down in a similar amount of time as it takes to put up. It can than be transported via a truck or trailer as a flat pack and assembled somewhere else.
A very unique feature of the Freedom Yurt Cabins is that it includes the floor structure as part of the house not as an extra. This is not seen in most yurts available on the market at this time.

Freedom Yurt Cabins has a dream to make an area where there will be a yurt village where you can stay and try out a Freedom Yurt Cabin and decide if that is the type of structure you would like to live in. You can look forward to future posts where we will see where this unique structure evolves. Visit Freedom Yurt Cabins website here.
