Yurts

238 Quaker City Road Acworth, New Hampshire (603) 499-2568 twogirlsyurts@gmail.com

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 ARE TAKING ORDERS AGAIN FOR YURTS, they will be ready for you in May 2023. If we have additional yurts available, on January 1 we will begin taking orders for yurts that will not be lived in fulltime.

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.

What's Included

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.

  • We schedule pickups each May on a first-come basis when we receive your deposit.

Ready-to-go solar kit. Designed for daily use. The kit charges phones and laptops, powers speakers and lights, runs small electric appliances, and will run a small efficient refrigerator year-round. Both kits come with an AC outlet, 2 USB plug-ins, and remote box with AC and DC power and a DC light. Also a digital voltage meter and manual. Can be customized now or expanded later.


This kit is better than anything we can find online. But like any photovoltaic setup, they are limited by sunshine. If your site is not in full sun, solar will not work for you. Cost: $2,950

To order a Two Girls Yurt:

We make everything by hand ourselves, so unfortunately we cannot accommodate everyone. Year-round yurt living in New England is our forte, so we make every effort to facilitate folks ready to take the jump out to year-round yurt living. Our yurts work best when they are lived in year-round.

Our yurts are available for pickup in May.

We accept a 50% deposit with your order. We do not accept electronic payment: check or cash works best. If you have to cancel, there is a $500 restocking fee once we have begun customizing your yurt. We have lots more useful information available on our FAQ page. For more information, to visit us, or place an order, call (603) 499-2568 or email twogirlsyurts@gmail.com
