Default Maine yurt living...

My husband and I are working towards selling our home and buying a yurt. My family has land that we can put one on. I'm wondering if there is anyone currently living in a yurt in Maine that could give us any tips!

We just sold our home in the Midcoast area, (currently under contract) and are also entertaining the idea or erecting two yurts and a connected bathhouse on some property here in Maine. We're currently looking for property in the Moosehead Lake region. We would like to have a small homestead and just live close to the land. Our family and friends think we lost our marbles, when we inform them of our plans, lol. Perhaps we have! Yurt living just seems to make sense, in regards to the lifestyle that we want to live. Still entertaining just purchasing another “stick built” home. Our goal is to make a final decision by the end of the week and start walking some property. If it ever stops snowing.....

We have gone back and forth with

Rainier Yurts

, regarding plans and such. So far they have been extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

We're currently stuck with what platform to choose, decking vs. a poured slab. Since it's going to be a "permanent" dwelling we want to have the security that it's going to last.

Thanks for your reply! I'll be curious to see how the process goes for you. We in Farmingdale (not far from Augusta, but rural) and our home is about 1800 sq ft. We've been discussing downsizing for awhile so that we can simply our lives and not "work to live". We've got chickens and a big garden now, but want to take more steps to live closer to the land, and we just kept coming back to the yurt idea! I've spoken with

pacific yurts

, and they have been very helpful as well. DO you have an idea of what type of water system ( septic, plumbing etc) you will use?
