Contractors with yurt experience are not easy to come by. That being said, the deck plans that come with your Pacific Yurt are simple enough for most contractors.

My contractor built mine a few days and then my friends and family built the rest in a day. A contractor crew could do the same.

Jafos yurt is 30' d.

Alternative to insane thousands of dollars a little 16' platform is gonna cost now.

If you have a flat lot pour a slab.

But I wouldn't do that myself. For a little 16' yurt, I would just prep a flat spot and erect the yurt on a poly tarp. Fold the tarp edge up outside the wall, under the cover. Think 'bathtub' floor. Add a low tension band to secure the tarp to the wall. Lay indoor outdoor carpet inside.

If you have a sloped lot, and need a bonafide platform, Pacific has excellent deck plans. But the labor and material is gonna be upwards of 10K right now, IF you find someone to build it.

Here's a what for. Last I checked three months ago, 5-2x4-8' studs was $100 including tax out the door at home depot. Those same studs were $25 June 2020. A framing load of lumber and trusses for a small 1800 sq ft. single level tract house was 28K a year ago. Now it is 85K. I just got that number from a builder whose house I was trimming about three weeks ago.

Pacific might have leads on an erection crew.

btw I built my 16' d wood

yurt platform

for ~$650 in 2013. I built a barn shed on the 16' platform last summer. Right now that little 10x12 shed would cost 10K in materials. Anyway there you go. Good luck.

Does anyone know a small contractor in Salem Oregon that might be interested in building the platform? I understand lumber is more expensive now. Thank you.
