Asia contacted me the other day about an interesting tiny house concept. Asia is the owner of a company called Laurel Nest Yurts. Here is what Asia had to say: We just “invented” a yurt on a trailer, with a round deck.
The Mongolians invented yurts as a portable structure. Laurel Nest Yurts invented the Yurtle TM as a portable yurt structure on wheels. Our Yurtle is a mobile home that is affordable, elegant, and sustainable. Our smallest model uses less than 50 yards of fabric, 30 2x4s, 2 sheets of plywood, and 35 decking boards. The Yurtle is a tiny house with tiny materials, totaling about 110 square feet plus a small porch.
Our Yurtle is a yurt on top of a customized double axle utility trailer with a collapsible round deck made from cedar decking boards. They are lovely spaces that can be used as a small home on the road. Drive out to a nice camp spot, sleep in the turtle shell overnight, and keep on going. If you decide to stay a few days, spend an hour and set up your cozy home away from home. The yurt sets up easily on the deck, and offers a comfortable and safe shelter.
