Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

I downsized my yurt from 15'9" to 12'6" in diameter a year ago. That's quite the difference. No chance I'd ever consider actually living in a 12' yurt. Absolutely no way. Great for camping but...

Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

For livability purposes a 14' is a much nicer size than 12'. The wood stove in the middle of my 16' yurt limits the actual living space to less than 8' stack to wall width everywhere inside the tent....

Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

I have read where a common Mongolian yurt size is 6M or about 300 square feet of living area. Untold generations of Mongolian families have called yurts close to that in size, their home, so, it...

Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

Correct. The formula for area of a circle is radius squared x 3.14. The area in a circle rapidly increases as the diameter increases. Example 10' yurt = 78 square feet. 12'=113' 14'=153' ...

Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

Wow! With a cot butted tight to the wall in a 10'er, there is a gap between the center of the cot and the yurt wall of just under a foot. So, that leaves maybe 2' to the center of the yurt from the...

Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

My current yurt is 16'. I could easily see living in it long term by myself. There is more than enough space for a bachelor and lifes basic necessities. 14' is a good size for a man living a spartan...

Re: 12 foot--cozy or too small?

IMO 12' is a very small yurt for full time living. A 10x12 trappers cabin is about the same size, and common in the bush, so it can be done by someone living a very spartan existence. My first yurt...
