Seeking current Yurt Foundation contact
 
Hello,
This is my first time posting here. I had been hoping to attend a workshop with Bill Coperthwaite to be exposed to the process through which he was making his wooden yurts and was very sorry to hear of his death. I am trying to make contact with someone involved with his Yurt Foundation in hopes of ordering some of his yurt plans. I mailed in a check to the address on their site a couple of months ago, but it may be that it is in limbo while they make arrangements for someone else to take control of the financials. I'd love to hear from anyone involved in the future of The Yurt Foundation and Dickinson's Reach.

Best,
Daniel Morris
Brooklyn, NY

I wish I knew the answer, but right now I don't. I am going to ping Steve on this because he happens to know some of the people on this.

Hello Jafo,
Thanks for your reply. I want to make it clear that I'm not trying to chase down money- the check I sent was never cashed. I'm eager to hear of the future plans for the Yurt Foundation and am still hoping to purchase plans.

Daniel,

No problem. I think a lot of things are in flux right now. Estate matters can take some time to settle. Let's see what Steve has to say. He only checks in every once in a while.

I just sent you a PM where you can reach members of the "The Dickinsons Reach Community", which is what the Yurt Foundation will now be known as.

Thanks for your help in contacting them. I received mail yesterday from Mike Iacona yesterday afternoon which included the requested plans and a really nice letter. He tells me that he will be handling the sales of yurt plans to benefit the Yurt Foundation and also be coordinating future yurt building workshops. I am very excited to hear that these will be continued and hope that I can take part in one in the future.

For now, I'm excited to have the opportunity to study these plans!

Hello I am trying to purchase some of Bill's plans for this summer 2014. Do you think you could give me the contact to purchase these plans? If not is there someone I could talk to that might be able to give it to me? Thank you so much for any and all help.
