Default Newbie Questions

Greetings all. I've recently been torn between building and buying, and due to cost vs income I've decided to build. I have decent skills, follow direction well, and own/have access to any necessary tools. My first question is regarding size. I intend on living in the yurt full time with my dog, and have the potential of my girlfriend and her dog and cat staying full/part time. I ideally would like something in the 24' range, but am open to going smaller. Any suggestions?

I'd build the 24'er. That's 452 sq.ft. If you plan on moving every six months or so, a 21' at 346 feet would be somewhat less work to move, and just a bit cheaper to build. Whether the space/cost/liveability differential would be a good trade off beats me, my yurt used to be 16' and I never lived in it, nor would I have had the slightest inclination to do such. WAY too small.

For reference, I lived in a 20x20 (400 square foot) apartment when I was young and single. That was small but OK. 350 feet would have really been just too small. In a very small space 100 square feet s a HUGE difference. Good luck.
