We will buy or barter for saplings. See twogirlsfarm.org/saplings.
We handcraft our yurts on the farm here in Acworth, NH, using un-milled round wood saplings for the rafters and split-lattice walls. Our materials are sustainably harvested from coppiced hardwood forests. We have lived in our yurts through the New England winters for (ever?) and have developed knowledge about materials and systems that work well for cold weather. Check out a piece I wrote on How to Live in a Yurt here.
Free Delivery and Raising
Our yurts are our babies: We deliver within New England to Vermont, New Hampshire,
"We spent our first night in the Yurt last night, slept very well with an owl hooting near by. It is so nice, you did a beautiful job with it. We are very happy in our yurt. . . . we are starting to feel at home out there. I felt the raising went great and we hope you did to. We enjoyed working with you!"
Authentic Mongolian Designed Skylights
We took a thousand-year old Mongolian design and adapted it to New England's climate. They are available with or without a central chimney. These are the first and only (that we know of) to be made in the western hemisphere. And the only ones of this style--ever--built all sealed up with glass and a center chimney. Gengis Kahn, eat your heart out.
--As those of you who saw us at the Common Ground Fair can attest, the fifteen-footer comes down in about nine minutes and goes back up in less than double that time. The cover is treated canvas with traditional painted designs. Steam-bent roof ring, rafters, and doorway. All wood straight from the forest. Canvas skylight cover included. Diameters: ten, fifteen, and twenty foot. Pricing: ten foot: $3,400; fifteen foot: $4,500; twenty foot: $5,600.

To order a Two Girls Yurt:
We accept a 50% deposit with your order. Once we receive your deposit, we get right to work on customizing your yurt. We make every effort to facilitate folks ready to take the jump out to year-round yurt living. That said, if you're looking to move out to your land in the spring, please give us a heads-up as soon as you can, preferably before February. Ken delivers and raises nearly all the yurts himself, and we haven't cloned him yet.
We have lots more useful information available on our FAQ page.
