Re: Permitting a yurt

No, actually, a yurt is not a tent. Tents can not withstand 80+ mph winds. A tent has framework but not an infrastructure that meets residential codes, which yurt frames do. A yurt is simply...

Re: Permitting a yurt

New York properties are often divvied up small and close together... I know upstate is different, but for state codes, it makes sense that they wouldn't want grey water systems running rampant.

Re: Permitting a yurt

I know that Colorado Yurts have shipped yurts to New Zealand. They had a vendor there for a while, not sure if they still do or not. They'd be a good source to connect with.

lizsteve,
Question: Are you sure you can't have an engineered/stamped gray water system along with a composting toilet? That's what code says here, and they were sticklers about anything other...

Wind kits are a good upgrade to get in a yurt, even if you aren't in a windy area. The posts allow for electric outlets and switches to be placed at convenient heights and wire for overhead lighting...

You're right, Dan. That's the clincher for a lot of structures in most places... if there is one permitted residence on the property it opens the door for many loopholes, like temporary structure,...

The most logical starting point is to call a county and ask them if they know of yurts and if so, do they allow them to be permitted as residences or accessory buildings. You can't trust other...

I suspect this is not as difficult as it seems to you right now. The first step is to narrow down some places so you can start asking questions. It seems you want someone to say 'counties a,b,c and...

Yes, I'd think Pacific could give you some tips about that area. And it may be more effective to figure out which counties do NOT accept them? But I'd expect Oregon and Washington would be pretty...

There is a distinction to made here about what types of yurts we are talking about. Since everyone here so far is talking about the modern day, contemporary, North American yurt, I suspect that is...
