Also wondering if anything has progressed since the start of this thread.
Does anyone know anything about the situation in the UK, too? My sister is thinking about it too...

I know that this is an older thread, but would like to know how your project has progressed. Iíve recently purchased land, and have my yurt on itís way. I found that by doing a concrete foundation with a wooden platform for the yurt that it was easier to get financing and permitting for my yurt.

Itís definitely going to depend on your local government, either city or county. Iím in the county and I also think that helped a lot with getting the approval. Cities tend to be a little more strict on the building codes. I doubt that itís impossible to get, just may take some creativity to persuade them.

I do know that if you need financing that the site that I bought mine through, simpleterra.com/yurt-kits/, has their own in house financing. I just took a look at it and they require 60-65% down and they will finance the rest.

Seeing that this thread was started in 2013, youíd think that a lot of progress would have been made in the last six years for alternate living homes, but a lot of areas just havenít dealt with people looking for permitting for them. I think Iím probably the first one in my area to put one up as a permanent home.

Reassuring the bank about things like you have an actual door and windows that locks helps too. A lot of people hear the word yurt and they assume itís just a fancy tent. It definitely takes a lot on the customers part to be creative with how to go about it.

Hi
I live in London and thinking to create my own yurt-house here in uk.

Do you have any suggestion in how to purchase land? I would be happy to hear your story!

Thanks
Maria
