Default Looking for yurt experts as consultants

Dear all,

I am starting manufacturing yurts in India.
Contacted all the major manufactures via email for collaboration, but none are interested.
I have the base ready and understand the basics but that is not enough, for production.
we have artisans and good tailors but they will require time to learn the trade and i don't have time.

So this forum is my last place to request, which is as below:-

I need experts on yurt designing and stitching online, they can come on board as they feel like.
The details can be discussed over a zoom call or they can contact me on my email which is [email protected]
Admin pls allow this for the sake of yurt...
regards to all..
Mahendra

I have watched Indians online making and rebuilding all manner of goods. In every case I was impressed by the industry and commitment to the tasks being performed. Your 'crew' will figure out how to economically mass produce yurts, by mass producing yurts. Production within a budget and timeframe is >ALWAYS< the best teacher. Good luck.

Can understand them - nobody want´s to share his longtime knowledge with future competitors from an "cheap-producing-country".....

Do you believe that other Yurt-manufacturers didn´t learn from scratch over long periods? They surely paid a lot of time and money on their first mistakes and faults, but exactly that brought them forward in quality standards.....

Just my 50 Cents.

Dear TS,

All i am looking for is experts on yurt designing (structure and fabric for Indian market)
You have said so many words but meant nothing....... what i am doing, why i am doing is because i think this structure can make a lot of difference for sustainability and low cost housing in India.

I promise you, i wont export it to the western world where you people are making supernatural profits selling the yurt. I will produce this yurt for Indian market and conditions under 1500USD.(yes it is possible)

If anyone is interested pls send me an email, and it would not be free.

Best regards to everyone
Maj Mahendra

I would suggest perhaps interning with a yurt builder for some time, perhaps in Mongolia. There are many families that make these there.

Mehendra, Jafo has a viable option.

The fact no manufacturers have responded to your inquiry means you'll have to learn it on your own. I doubt any manufacturer here has any inclination to help you, or they would have responded.

So, move forward. Making yurts is not difficult. I have made the three nomadic yurts using these plans:

Solaripedia Building a Mongolian Yurt

All three were extremely affordable and would house people quite well. If you have carpenters and sewers available, materials, tools and a place to work, jump in and go for it. I guarantee you will learn fast, and if there is a real market even the simplest yurts, like the ones I made, will sell if the cost is reasonable. Good luck.

NASA learned how to make rockets, by making rockets. If 1959 NASA had asked the Russians how they got Sputnik into orbit, I'm thinking Russia wouldn't have given them 'tips and tricks' on how they did it. The finger would have been given free of charge though. lol Good luck Mahendra.

I see that a little bit different if the focus lays on professional productions for selling the Yurts to consumers.....

And I believe that a lot of knowledge and detail production planning is necessary to reach the level from experienced producers like (e.g.)

Pacific Yurts
