yurt-outsideI WANT A YURT. I have the perfect spot for it.

Why replicate an ancient structure used by Caucasian nomads in my backyard? Well, it could serve as a guest room, office, hang-out.

Do I really need a yurt right now? No, of course not. Somehow, though, the vision has taken hold.

Pacific Yurts seems to be the leading supplier. They can cost as little as $5,000, though that, of course, is the base model, and you have to have a platform built. As it’s more of a tent than a permanent structure, I don’t think it would require a permit.

Something to mull over the winter…anyone have experience with yurts?
