Craigslist is showing two wooden yurts for sale at a bargain price of $3,500 each. Here is the listing on Craigslist.

You can learn more about the company at Yurt People. The company is located in Talmage, California just outside of Ukiah. These are tiny yurts but I think they would make a great tiny house.

These yurts are on sale because they were built a few years ago and never set up. The prices includes all materials except the foundation and the interior siding.

Please call Miguel 707-799-8595 or email picaflor@earthlink.net

Below are some photos of a couple of the style yurt that is for sale that have been completely finished. The above appears to be just a basic shell that requires completion.

If you purchase one of these please let me know as I would enjoy posting your story of what you do with it and how it is completed. Thank you.

    When I click on the Yurt People link, my browser locks up. Don’t know if the link is bad or what.

      Hi Darrell – they have javascript running on their site so I think that maybe what is causing your browser problems…Kent

    These look sweet! I lived in a 17′ octagon (with loft) for a year at Breitenbush – was one of my favorite houses! & for several months in a cloth yurt, made by one of the staff members! That was a bit larger, & so nicely laid out!
    thanks for sharing this

  3. Never heard of a Yurt before , whats the name mean and come from? Kinda cute

  4. Uploading photos of the yurt I built in my backyard, for relocation into a high forest lot when I find one.

    Got the Colorado 27 ft diameter yurt top and canvas liner for $500 on eBay auction.

    The wood was from a mobile home addition that was only two years old and never painted, as a favor to someone and I kept the wood.

    About $500 in brackets and screws and paints.

    Can insulate the roof and the walls, extend the 5 ft walls to 7 feet and add in a three quarter loft to bring interior space to 900 sf!

    Metta to all.

    I love your blog. Absolutely brilliant. I have a friend name David who moved to a yurt years ago in Hamilton, Ontario. I was so impressed by his decision to make a yurt his permanent dwelling that I made a documentary about it. Let me know what you think. Here is a trailer: http://www.roadslesstraveled.tv/trailer. Let me know what you think? I’m looking to transfer to an unconventional lifestyle of my own. How do people find living in tiny houses? Any advice? I’m interested.
