Default Original Yurts.. Mongolia/USA

Hi there
Does anyone know of Original Yurts?
www.originalyurts.com
Working out of USA & Mongolia.
They seem to be reputable but interested if anyone has purchased from them. I am in Australia.

Website looks completely legit. You could make notes of what you want to know and give them a call. Ask for some references. Good luck.

Many thanks Bob. I have researched extensively and am confident of the company now. Ordered my Ger and expect delivery sometime August.. depending on shipping etc. Planning the platform now..they have provided excellent detailed construction. I am located East coast Tasmania..low rainfall & sandy soil. I will report back if anyone is interested.
Thanks for your opinion again

Seems legitimate from what I read on the website. The odd wording makes it clear someone was working to convey messages from the native tongue.
As to the Yurts, they look slightly complicated relative to “Modern” western yurts, but then that’s to be expected.
Good luck and let us know how the whole project plays out

and another thought I had is that you might order a second outer cover (if possible) since the five year life span will go by so quickly. Who knows what the World will look like 5 years from now.
I’m 16 years into owning a modern vinyl covered yurt and the outer cover is beginning to come apart. The reality of trying to fit a new cover on an older yurt is daunting. Hence, my suggestion

Hi there thanks for your reply.Ah yes I already thought that. Ordered a traditional white and an extra green outside cover. Gum trees fairly close by and their leaves stain. Yes I'll report back..I did want a traditional Ger. I'll take pics..maybe YouTube the whole process.
My neighbour (we are on fairly large blocks overlooking the sea) has also ordered one and apparently there is a large order already coming to Tasmania including an 11m one. Interesting!
As you say..where will the world be in 5 years. In a year for that matter!

If you are having issues finding someone to make a yurt cover for you, let me suggest Steve over at Grandma Shirley's Yurts. He can make a cover for just about anything, once given the proper dimensions:
