new to this forum and agree that this subject is a great way to start. I am just beginning to explore the idea of a yurt. living in California, I suspect that it will be an uphill battle to get a permit to build a yurt, especially with the new codes coming up. Any californians wanting to share their thoughts is appreciated.

Sorry I can't answer your question. All my inlaws live there but none are into yurts. There's little traffic on this site so I make up for it by flappin my gums on every thread. I know a few folks gotta be gettin burned out on me. ha Hopefully someone will pop in here soon. Good luck

My recent experience in a rural county in Utah. At first we were told by someone in the building department that we didn't need a permit to build a yurt. This was accurate but not the whole story. Turned out we don't need a permit for the yurt but we do need a permit for the platform/deck. Any deck over 200 square feet requires a permit in our area. Of course the deck needs to meet code requirements for construction regarding beam and joist spans, beam size, railing, stairs, etc.

In our case, the yurt is not going to be a residence and we're building it in a way that allows it to fall into a "recreational" category. Basically this means no permanent services, like water, gas, electricity, sewer, etc. This is fine for us but doesn't suit everyone's needs.

If we didn't go this route then all the typical residential codes would apply and it would be way more intensive to permit, design, and build. YMMV.
