There are many hundreds of you New Englanders who email us every year seeking to get on land and do awesome things. Alas, the four of us can only build from scratch fifty or so yurts yearly. If you are serious about dedicating tens of thousands of hours to working for yourself (not us) at your home building yurts, we can help you get started. If you just want to build a yurt for yourself, all our designs, materials, suppliers, etc. are available on the /diy page.
We will take orders for full-time-living yurts beginning October 1, 2022, ready for you in May 2023, until they sell out.
The focus of our business is creating shelter for people in New England. If you are looking for a yurt not for full-time living, you might try woman-owned Blue Ridge yurts in Virginia, or Colorado yurts. 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 local coppiced hardwood forests, and we power all our tools by the sun. We have lived in our yurts through the New England winters for a very long time, and have developed knowledge about materials and systems that work well for wet and cold weather. Visiting Us.
The four-season yurt includes:
heavy duty 40mil cover (roof is the same Duro-Last material that some folks sell as an optional heavy-duty roof). All white with red bands (traditional: this is the hot fashion trend among eastern nomads for the last few thousand years) or tan roof with green walls and black trim (blends in better in the trees but gets hot out in the open).
Windows: Clear removable covers with screen panels sewn in. One in the 14', two with the 17' and 20, and three in the 25'. Evenly spaced around the perimeter.
Sapling roof rafters and split lattice wall.
Hand-built roof ring.
Nine-pane arched Mongolian-style skylight with UV-resistant polycarbonate panes. Copper ribbing. Optional chimney through center. 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.
Thirty-two inch handmade wooden door with full tempered glass window
All assembly hardware.
