Unknown Manufacturer
Is there a way to determine a yurtís manufacturer? The current owner is not the person who bought the kit & built the yurt. She bought it years ago & has no way to contact the original owner/builder. The dome / skylight may need to be replaced before winter, but she has no idea which company to contact. I havenít seen any obvious labeling, but I havenít done a thorough search.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Gotta good laff out of that.

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
I can take some, but what structural details are likely to be useful? Am guessing the skylight? Maybe the way the lattice is attached?
Sorry - I clearly know very little about yurts aside from this older one.

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
The center ring and the dome. The front door and the windows. The rafters too. A shot from the outside might help too..

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
Thanks, Jafo!
I can’t take detailed photos until later in the week. Have posted an exterior shot in my album.

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
It looks like you have those long, pull up windows but need better pics. If so, could be a colorado yurt or a Rainer.

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
Hope these additional photos help. The yurt’s been used as a rental for several years, & hasn’t had a lot of TLC.

I really appreciate your willingness to help, Jafo.

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
Looking at your pictures here, I'm afraid I do not have any idea who may have manufactured it. Others may have an idea.

Re: Unknown Manufacturer
the frame and roof is like early 2000 version from Yurts of America. The 3 layer ring and bullnosed rafters is one of our trade marks.

It took me a second to notice behind the window photo there was another outer wall there.

It is a Yurts of America yurt from around 2000 - 2004. It's great to see that it's still going strong. Though the current outer wall isn't ours.
