Default Yurt as an Extension or Addition to a House


I was wondering if anyone has had an experience in using a yurt as an extension off of an existing house. We would love to build in New York State, but the zoning/building code restrictions are intimidating. Additionally, from a fiscal perspective, buying a small house with site work, water, sewer, electric and heat all sorted out is attractive and can be found for a reasonable price upstate.

I don't know how integrating the two structures would work, but i'd image it would be possible. The addition would serve as a master bedroom and office space.

Does anyone see any reason this wouldn't be possible? Thanks in advance! This forum is a great resource for us future yurt-dwellers.
