Re: Pros & cons for high/low walls (lattice)?

My standard yurt is 56” which is very traditional. We do a high wall too which is 66”. But my yurts are for camping so it’s not necessary to have higher walls. The main advantage with low walls is...

Re: Using string for the Khana

I use polypropylene diamond braid rope in my yurts. You can get some cool colors. I seem to remember when I started up my business I checked out nylon, but it stretches more.
Another alternative is...

Re: Tree house Yurt plans

If this tree house company is the one we work with, then the yurt is one of ours. Our yurts are more traditional and therefor weigh much less than a yurt you live in.
The reason they seem expensive...

Re: use rivet to joint the lattice wall together

For my camping yurts I use 3/16” diamond braide polypropylene rope. Lowe’s actually now stocks a very nice one in 100ft hanks. Three bright colors, red, blue, green and yellow (four colors).

Re: Simple 9’ Yurt

The height of the wall has no bearing on the angle of the roof. The distance between the top of the wall and the ring determines the angle of the roof, so you need to know what size your ring will...

Re: Are yurts really portable?

You need one of my yurts. They are designed to be lightweight and portable. You would need a donkey, horse or vehicle to transport it as it is not a "back packing" yurt. The total weight of my 12ft...

Re: Introducing: Yurts Truly

Re: Introducing: Yurts Truly
