Default Full time living

Hello all!
I am looking into a yurt to move my family into full time. We are a family of 5. i have been looking at the Nomad 50' floor plan and I was hoping that I could get pointed in a direction for a program for floor plan design and layouts. I am just starting this "journey" and it seems like a promising idea. The plan was to build a stick frame house on the property I purchased, but the cost of the world is through the roof and the yurt seems as if it could be my way out of the rat race. Thanks- any tips, pointers, pros/cons will be greatly appreciated and received.

Jafo might know something about that. I don't. Good luck.

I would split that into one bigger living Yurt and maybe 2 additional smaller sleeping Yurts. Just my 50 Cents for privacy of each family member....

With five there's no 'out of rat race' unless you are born wealthy. Work work work work work. Making a go of it is what real men and women do to get by.

That said you can fit five member family in a 1963 sq ft. My son's family of five has been in a 1750' tri level over the last ten years. four beds two baths. It's tight as hell but it has worked. And work is exactly what mom and dad do to take care of business.

I can beat that. 6 in 1100 ft2, 3br 2bath, wonderful, loved it, wish I could go back. Enjoy that 50ftr, but TSRalex has a point.

My wife's parents raised their two girls in a 3B 1b rancher of 1064 sq ft. I was raised in a 3B 2b rancher just a bit bigger. We raised our son in a 1B 1b condo that was 740 sq ft. About the same size as a 30' yurt.

But even the cheapest built tract house is WAY the hell tougher and has more creature comfort and more owner friendly than any yurt. You bet I like yurts, but they ARE a tent, not a house.

I built our 3800 sq ft 4B 3b rancher, over full basement, in 2000. We moved out of the condo and into here. It's perfect. I built this place solid. Winds that literally picked up tossed and blew apart my first yurt didn't even begin to phase this house.

I like the space, the amenities, the comfort, everything about this place. We worked our butts off from the late 70s on paying off our condo and this home. Was it worth all that work? You betcha. Yurt is hobby. This house is HOME.
