Default Mongolian Ger Importers

Is there anyone that has dealt with importing an authentic Mongolian Ger?I live in Virginia and was interested in having one made for me.I have some names but I would like to find one based on the east coast.

Groovy yurts imports some fabulous yurts, but they also oversee the production and quality control of them. They deal with the same families, year after year, to ensure good quality. Beware the fly by night yurt importer. Many times you get a really lousy product unless you deal with professionals (like groovy yurts).

I came here for guidance.I am very familiar with the Ger as something I know I want. If there are alternatives am also willing to isten.I just have no ability to construct one on my own.Are there less expensive alternatives?l

Thanks for the nice review Jafo!

HippieGypsy, If you have contacts in Mongolia, we can help you import your ger. It will cost roughly 1500$ for a 5-wall ger to our warehouse in Montreal and we can offer local shipping / delivery.
Be very careful with quality though, especially with the humid climate on the east coast. I'll be happy to help with some tips if you give us a call (ask for Yves)

all the best with your projects,

I understand that the climate is somewhat of an issue but in the 21st century there has to be work arounds.
If the cost of my housing and my needs are less than the usual homebuilders can we not deal with this?

Sorry, I am not quite sure I understand your question. We precisely have found ways to deal with the climate issues on authentic Mongolian gers:-)
