I just bought 14 acres of land and im looking for alternative ways of living and I want to build a yurt.
I woodwork as a hobby so I know my way around wood, machinery, and hand tools. There is also a place near me that specializes in canvas for trucks etc. I am planning on seeing how much their canvas is.
Are there any good books on building you own yurt? There is nothing on my land and I need to start building something as soon as the weather breaks. Ive looked for books and there doesnt seem to be to many out there on actually building them from scratch.
I have questions like the platform, what the best mterial, shape, and design. It will be an all weather yurt so should I insulate the platform? Whats the best non toxic insulation
What size should the lattice be? I see a bunch of different thicknesses and materials being talked about.
Or if anyone can answer my questions, I would be greatful. I am hoping to start building in about a month or 6 weeks. What have people spent on building their own yurt from scratch?
Thank you for your help
