Default Financing a Yurt?

Hello all in the yurt community!

My husband and I are brand new to the world of Yurts -
We recently became aware of this option and are beginning the process of educating ourselves as to how we would theoretically build and own a Yurt home. We would be building a wooden yurt for our permanent residence with full amenities: plumbing, electrical etc., as an economic and efficient alternative to buying a home.

One of our main questions thus far is the financing of a yurt and the land. Of course, it is much affordable than buying home - but we would still need to borrow money to make this idea a reality. Does anyone have experience in this area? Has anyone (somehow) successfully mortgaged a project of this nature ?! Perhaps the banks wouldn't consider this a "mortgage" but use different jargon? - perhaps /construction loan/land improvement loan (or other) ??

Any and all advice on this issue would be appreciated. I would love to about your experience in this area!

Sorry no answers but wanted to chime in and say I'd be interested in the same sort of information from others. Keep on brainstorming.

I don't have any experience in financing a yurt, but we talked about it here:
