Re: Radiant heat gain

If you have water, check out your site and plant some deciduous trees to the south and west of your yurt. Talk to your county extension service, (there is one in every county in the USA), and find...

Re: Yurt in Denmark ?

Yo Bob,

I don't think anyone is of the opinion that you are anything but a great addition to the group, so don't leave unless you are tired of us. I'm not as active here as I have been, but I...

Re: The project rises again..advice, please and thanks?

Sorry that I am late with this post, you may have already finished your project.

I don't have any hard answers, but I visited a straw bale house in Billings, Montana sometime in the early 1980's...

Re: Cleaning a Yurt Roof?

I have not tried to buy one, but I have used a friend's loooong handled brush that he borrowed from another friend who worked at a truck stop, washing over the road trucks. If there is a truck stop...

Re: Cows and yurts

I am with hierony, electric fence.

I bought a solar fence charger at Tractor Supply last time I was in the US, and it was $25.00, summer of 2016. Fiberglass posts = no insulators, and wire is...

Re: Flooring options for transportable yurt?

Hi Chris,

Maybe I have posted this before, but in case I didn't, or you haven't seen it.

A few years ago when my wife and I were traveling in Mongolia, we often stayed in yurts. There I will...

Re: Yurt Insulation- Fleece

Prodex makes their own tape which they say is far superior to duct tape.

It isn't cheap, but I would be looking at it if I was using Prodex. I think their website is insulation4less, but that...

Re: Mice

I tried the cockroaches fried with garlic, chili and basil. Frankly, I didn't care for them. The are just too goopy-pasty. The inside is the color and texture of flan, but not the taste. Yuck.

Re: Mice

Hi Ivan,

As a kid growing up in the Appalachian mountains we often had holes in the screens, and all our neighbors did as well.

It was common to cut an oversize piece of screen (these were...

Re: uplighting or downlighting?

I think it is really a question of what you like.

Light bounced off the white ceiling will give you a broader, smoother light, but you will lose a lot of the "power" of your light this way, so you...

Re: ductless heat pumps

Not exactly on target, but here is another idea for your construction, if you aren't already past the platform point.

Re: Insulting Article

I don't think Groovy Yurts will mind to much if everyone adds a yurt to their Christmas shopping list.

I know I would mind it. HoHoHo!

Re: Yurts and Rain Storms

Hi Rachel,

I have been in yurts in Mongolia, with 2 layers of 1"+ felt, and it rained for 3 days. Most of the time it wasn't a problem, you could talk, but at times you were yelling to the person...

Re: Land rental for yurt living

Hi Rachael,

I have a lot of kin growing trees out in that area, but admittedly they are under them. My family goes back to just after the revolutionary war in NC, Lunsford, Ledbetter, Bryson,...

Re: Land rental for yurt living

Dear Rachel,

I think you are going to have to be a lot more specific.

How would you answer if someone asked, "Would you like to move to somewhere?" How would you pack?

I'm not trying to...

Re: Construction Loan

That makes sense, until you consider you can't buy or sell a car without registering it with the state, and that car has a VIN number that is tracked, neither of which is required on the yurts I...

Hi Steve,

Yes, I have thought of building them myself, but I already had purchased 7 while in China. Now they are on their way to the USA.

I still have in my mind to build them, but at the...

Re: Is fire retardant treated canvas safe?

Hi RocktheCasbah,

It would be hard to know what the manufacturer used to make the fire-retardant material without asking them. Too many variables. Most will happily tell you if you ask. There...

You have a heck of a question, and I'm not sure any of us can answer most of it, but I can add a little perhaps. I don't even pretend to be an expert, just a guy with a long time interest. Maybe...

Re: Good ride. I'm out.

You might as well hang around Bob, What else do you really have to do that is half as much fun?

Plus the fact that you will be missed if you go. ;-)

Re: Part-Build / Part-Buy?

Just a thought, how about splitting your poles? It would require only half as much shaving, would make them fit and fold together better, and if your poles are the proper diameter, there should...
