Re: Moving yurt door

Bob, if that particular yurt has our snow & wind kit, the rafter supports (studs), could be removed prior to lifting the yurt in order to reduce weight.

Re: Roof (and dome) vs. wind...the wind keeps winning!

When zooming in on your photo I see that the side cover clips have been fastened to the lattice wall using cable ties. Those white clips (jib hanks) should clip onto a cable or cord installed in the...

Re: Newbie, my build notes / Pacific Yurts 16ft

JP, the yurt is going to look great tucked into the corner of your yard! I would suggest that you plane the Trex used for your drip edge down to 1/2" in thickness. As it is you will have problems...

Re: Cows and yurts

I have never heard of a cow chewing on one of our yurts, but anything is possible. I agree that a simple electric fence around the yurt would be sufficient deterrent. You should also make sure that...
