Default Largest yurt in America

Does anyone know what the largest yurt is in N America, and if so what size it is and who made it?

I don't know it for a fact, but I do believe the 50 footer by

Nomad Shelter Yurts

in Alaska are the biggest sold commercially. I could be wrong though.

There is no way to make that engineering sound without central and midspan supports...

My guess would be Bill Coperthwaite's triple concentric yurt in Maine.

Good thinking. A 50' free span is HUGE in a house let alone a yurt. I doubt I have ever seen a house truss span that size and I been carpentering for decades.
