Yurts are a good place to to try out tiny house living as we’ve stated before. Here’s a nice design from The Bakery Group called the Yurta.
They’re built in the Lanark Highlands area of Canada using local and sustainable materials, including white ash and cedar.
Yurta’s structure is made of wood with the outer covers marine canvas or polyesters.
I like the yurta structure because the usual lattice is minimized and the windows are more open than in other yurt structures. This yurt is also easily moved because the weight is less than 300 lbs. and fits in a 4 x 8 foot trailer. Yurta states that 2 people can assemble the yurt in 45 minutes. Here is what they have to say about there yurta:
“The circular space is simply beautiful; combining the finest elements of traditional and modern designs. The structure of the wall, or lattice, is minimized to not only make transport and setup easier, but to add a lighter look and feel to the space. With less structure in the way, windows are accessible and airy making the indoors of the Yurta feel like an extension of its natural surroundings. The canvas shell allows for a gentle glow with little to obstruct the sounds of its outdoor environment.”
