Default Window installation

We are adding a second yurt at our place. The first is a 20 ft. used as a family room, guest quarters etc. This next one is a 24 ft. to be a little more of a home. We are planning on putting in regular windows and could use some tips.
Can anyone share?

Thanks, Bill

Here is a yurt window retrofit video that might be helpful:

Thanks JAFO. I watched that a couple of times. We'll be building our own window frames but the video was helpful.

I'm having the same thoughts. Currently I'm thinking of a floor to cieling 'panel' made of wood that contains the window in a floating frame, and which ias anchor points for the lattice and the fabric cover.

Wood is strongest in tension, so I think it can take the pressure. Essentially it would be like making three door units but two of them just have a window.

When I've worked out how I will make this, I'll post a drawing. I think this could also provide a safe exit for a stove chimney.

Thanks, I think I have it worked out. We drove over to

Pacific Yurts

yesterday and looked at their models. They have two different techniques: one for the snow/wind upgraded framing and one for the standard framing. We have the standard framing and will go with that. That info with

Colorado Yurts

video should do the trick.
