Re: Traditional v modern
 
My 2 cents from traditional Kazakh yurt owner.
From my observation, Canadian climate (ON, SK, MB) reminds me of different weather conditions of Central Asia, where turkic yurts are used even now. I chose turkic design because it's higher, lighter and my heritage. I am still waiting to spend my first winter there.
Kazakhs told me that the use of traditional felt yurt is around 25 years, "however, you will have to change felt cover once in a while" So I am not sure what the real number is.

Another thing, why I will always chose traditional yurt is it's mobility. I see modern yurts are more of a permanent structure. I like the freedom of putting my yurt in a truck and move it somewhere beyond regulations.
