Default Introducing: Yurts Truly

We have added a new manufacturer today: Yurts Truly. They build solid walled yurts out of Vancouver Island in British Columbia. These are permanent yurts designed to meet most modern building codes, especially where it comes to

insulation

.

The rep for the company is Dave, and he can be contacted here. Welcome aboard Dave!

Thanks for the warm welcome Jafo
We would LOVE to work with all other yurt companies in passing along any leads - MANY are not interested in our yurts due to the cost and I suspect there are some that want a yurt that can withstand heavy snow loading or have an R-22 wall

excellent
Lets try this

Our joint is a triple T & G with no side chords - eliminating thermal transfer
The top and bottom of every log is solid for 6" in order to fasten the logs together.

Emseal tape and big stretch caulking make it water and air tight

Looks amazing, quite a different offering.
Do you make the roof or is that made by someone else?

Hi Yurt Man

Thank you for the kind words regarding our line of insulated log yurts
The roof is purchased from a grain bin manufacturer. Most will sell you their roof separately

I wondered if it was that. I have thought for a long time that this would be the most logical and durable of roof systems as they are already being manufactured and have ironed out all the issues. Looks really sharp too.

I had a look at your site. your yurts look very nice and you have some innovative construction methods. I hope you do well selling them.

Thanks Richard,

The one we built for NB Parks back in 2013 is still standing with ZERO issues. We are building yurt number 1 of 7 for a new yurt village in the Tofino area of Vancouver Island now - start installation in January

Yes, the grain bin manufacturers have most of the bugs worked out for a roof for grain bins - a bit of engineering was required to adapt to a live in structure.

For this yurt I purchased 2 red cedar logs (52" diameter) and had them custom cut and kiln dried - 600 year old logs.

I will create another blog for this build like I did for the alpine yurt recently installed for BC Parks
