20 foot Groovy Yurt with Platform


Selling our beautiful 5 wall, 20ft, 4 season traditional Mongolian yurt from Groovy Yurts. Comes with lots of upgrades and available as of May.1st.

This yurt is only 2 1/2 years old – my wife and I purchased it new from Groovy Yurts and set it up ourselves (with help from Groovy yurts).

We used it as a bedroom w/bath for a year (some of the best sleeps of our lives) and then moved and have rented it out to a friend for the last year and a half. It has always been lived in and well maintained, never cooked in (so no lingering cooking smells) and intentionally situated in a spot that receives lots of sunlight year round.

It has some natural spotting and a little wear from the last couple years of use (mostly on the outside canvas), but overall it is in excellent condition and ready for a new home.

Comes with all the standard options including:

-One toono (compression ring) with three vinyl covered window frames and one stove pipe hole for the front half
-One front door with an interior double door frame
-81 roof rafters/huns
-2 bagaans (central support posts)
-5 lattice wall sections (for the 5 walls)
-1 set of natural wool felts (wall insulation)
-1 inside cotton liner
-1 exterior canvas
-1 standard insulated urgh (canvas cover for the toono) with four connection ropes.
-1 rayartch (bottom exterior decorative skirt)
-1 rope set: 3x exterior ropes, 1 tension rope, 4 toono ropes, 1 fertility rope, wall connection ropes.

We also have invested in many upgrades for this super sweet dwelling – including:

Yurt Upgrades:
- Natural wood finish (designed by Tuya and her team which comes with greater attention to detail, refined woodwork/construction, and a unique natural wood finish vs traditional orange, blue, etc painted interiors)

- Full electrical hook up with wall panel and 3 separate power outlets (cost over $1500 to purchase & install).

- Upgraded 4 season insulation package (additional second set of wool felt insulation – stay cozy and warm in the winter while still being breathable and comfortable in the warmer months)

- Full House wrap -A high-quality permeable roof underlay and a sheet of standard house wrap for the walls. Offers optimal weather resistance, while still allowing the yurt to breathe.

- Two bow windows (one that opens and the other stationary) to take in the beauty of the natural surroundings outside the yurt

- Insulated urgh chimney wrap (to keep heat from escaping from the top hole over the winter)

- Urgh vinyl clear chimney cover – fully waterproof and still allows in sunshine (or moonlight) from above

- Chimney flashing and stove pipe securing package

- Extendable roof cleaner for winter months

Yurt Platform and Substructure:

We hired an experienced local carpenter to help us build our own yurt platform and substructure. The substructure/deck measures 22ft 2 inches by 22 feet 2 inches. Designed to be easily taken apart and moved (we will help you with this).

To purchase just the yurt platform alone (the round part that goes beneath the yurt) is $6500 on Groovy Yurt’s website. We also have some nice cedar boards running around 2/3rds of the deck. We are including the yurt platform, the wooden substructure, and the cedar decking for $5500.

Set Up + Take Down:
We are willing to help whoever ends up purchasing the yurt to take it down (and pack up for transport) along with the substructure and platform. We are open to discussions around helping you set up as well.

Additional options:
- Very nice free standing bath tub (paid $1600 new)

- Wood stove (with stove piping) – heats up the space great in the winter but may be a little big for the yurt to be honest

Asking Price:
If you were to purchase this same model yurt now, with all the upgrades, taxes and delivery you would pay $18,500 (not including the $850 yurt set up fee). Happy to share cost breakdown for those interested.

We are asking $14,500 for the yurt (which includes $1500 worth of electrical hook ups) and $5500 for the yurt platform, substructure & decking, for a grand total of $20,000 – around $8000 in savings vs buying new.

Because of the unique nature of the platform and substructure we need to sell this with the yurt.

Wood Stove (+pipes) and tub can be included if you wish for $21,500 total (or sold separately at $700 and $850 respectively).

This has been such a sweet space for us and we are truly sad to see it go – but it doesn’t fit our current living situation and the time has come for it to find a new loving home. Located in the Nelson area. Serious enquiries only please – message to book a viewing (available to be moved as of May.1st).
