Yurt Materials & EMF/MCS
Hello, I'm new here and am considering a Yurt to help me deal with my Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and mold-sickness, among other things. I'm not sure if I will be able to tolerate vinyl and polyester, so I have wondered about trying the galvanized steel construction but am concerned about the metal amplifying my EMF sensitivities (cannot tolerate strong electromagnetic fields). Does anyone else have any experience or input on this and what materials are best for someone in my situation? So very grateful for your help! :)

You may want to look into Groovy Yurts. All natural materials. Heck, they even use rawhide instead of nuts and bolts. :)

That's a great idea Jafo!

CharisJoy - I have not had any mold issues in my yurt (that I'm aware of), but many do. And not sure how wood smoke would be for you. I'm also off grid and do like that there are no EMF, though I do use 3G cell phone internet and who knows what that is doing to us all. (Put the phone on "airplane" mode a lot.) There are plenty of contaminants in the "natural" world, but if you love nature, yurts can be healing, I think. Best of luck on your journey to wellness. MCS is really hard.
