Default Any Yurters in Minnesota

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forums, but have had my eye on living in a yurt for about 10 years. Now I (along with my husband and two kids) are getting closer to our dreams, I'm curious to hear from anyone who lives in a yurt in Minnesota (or the midwest in general, I suppose).

We are looking to buy the 30ft Pacific Yurt with all the

insulation

, wind and snow kit, and tall walls.

I can't speak for anyone in the midwest, but welcome to the forum!

I'm a Minnesota yurter wannabee, hanging here to learn as much as I can as it's a serious option when I no longer need to live near an ageing parent.
Please keep us posted as your dreams materialize.

Hello Neighbor,
Although at the moment are downstate living with and helping parents with later in life issues, our home base is on the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We are working toward a camp and/or business that probably will include at least one yurt. On the Keweenaw we have *heavy* snow (high 200 inches average, over 300 last year) so we too are looking at a sturdy yurt with

insulation

. Would be glad to compare notes, etc.

I'm jumping in here to say that I am also in the Midwest (near Duluth, MN) and looking into yurt living. I have a very large family and our dream has always been to live together as an extended family. We're making plans to purchase land and yurts to start out. I hope it goes well for you!

We are just finishing our

yurt that we put up not too far from Itasca State Park in Northern Minnesota. We plan on living in it full time. Just found this community recently, but look forward to being a part of the community!

Norther MN yurt wannabe here! My husband and I are relocating to the North Shore of Lake Superior and hoping to make full-time yurt living a reality within the next year.
