Default Re: Any Yurters in Minnesota

I know that this thread is older and wonder how your yurt project has come. Iím in Montana, so I know about the cold winters. What I like about yurts is how versatile they are. Whether living in the desert, mountains, or in the city thereís a yurt that will work for any and every location.

Iíve had my setup for almost two years now and itís been great for living off the grid. The one thing that I highly recommend getting is an


and snow kit. Itíll keep you nice and toasty in the cold winters. I added a wood burning stove (make sure you vent it properly, the last thing you want is your yurt catching on fire.) The added benefit is that if you donít run electricity you can cook on it. I used that for the first year until I ran power.

The cool thing about yurt living is there really isnít anything that you canít add to it that youíd have in a traditional home. I added some solar panels (they have to go on the ground. If you built your own yurt you could make it strong enough to put them on top) and a generator for backup so I have lights.

I went with a 1213 sq ft yurt from simpleterra.com/yurt-kits/, which is more than enough space for my wife and daughter and myself. I added walls for two bedrooms and a bathroom for privacy. Iíve added cabinets for the kitchen, and a sink.

I dug a well for water and ran plumbing to the yurt. The plumbing and electrical both come up through the wooden platform that I built for the yurt to be on. I also put in a septic tank last year. Before that I was using a composting toilet.

Really, whatever you can dream up you can add to a yurt. Or you can keep it simple.
