Ditto, I thought that you wanted to duplicate the floor with the resin covered rounds. Very pricey.

Rough sawn mill floor joists with re-done pallets on top would be about the cheapest way to a deck that I know of.

I'm just finishing up the floor/foundation for my 16' yurt and using mostly scrapwood and some free leftovers for the frame and some logs for the posts I haven't spent anything yet (had screws), this week I plan spending about $400-500 for the tongue and groove and two layers of rigid foam

insulation

with a ploy sheet vapor barrier. My setup is not designed to last multiple years but I didn't want anyone to be scared away by some of the prices shared on this thread. Just finishing up the yurt I've been working (slowly) on for two years! I'll post evrything once I get settled in

p.s. this forum has been a tremendous help along the way!

Thumbs up Re: Cost for platform (and deck)?

I appreciate your cost figures, it helps others for sure. I am looking at about half of my own building on it, and then buying the roof and wall covering. I still lean towards rug felt as I've found several area sources for it. I have table saw etc so can make most of the wood components. I want it to last at least ten years, I plan on being around that much at least. I am also going to add in two 30" or more windows, thermo paned. I like what I see of

Surely Yurts

website, but there are also other good sources here.

This is a great site, and a real resource for those folks wanting a yurt. I havent posted much, helping my son with his place, and only now changing my search for only MI. It makes more sense for me.

When you get yours done, and even as you go along your figures will be of interest, when I do get the land I want I will do the same. I am guestimating somewhere around $7,000 for material.Plus or minus. If it goes over thats okay, its what I wind up with that counts.

Operable windows are certainly a good idea for a more permanent dwelling that you live in full time.

This is really helpful b/c I have just been quoted $26K!! to build a 30 foot platform in NE Maine. Clearly I need to keep shopping for someone to build it....

Get a couple more quotes. Ask for photos and references. It's your money.
