I have a wife and a lot of kids. Living in a yurt is just not in my immediate future.

Totally understand that. From everything you have learned so far, would you need to do anything else to be able to live in it full time? Or is it set up so that it could sustained comfortable living?

I have a wife and 2 young kids. Hopefully living in a yurt is in my near future. I still have to find land first!

We just built our platform and put our yurt up to finally start living in it! Very excited about getting cosy once the woodburner is in, and settling into our lovely spot. Anyone else living in a yurt over winter in sunny Scotland?

Jafo, climate at the moment is drizzly! We have colder weather than England, especially in winter where we can sometimes have a foot of snow but not always. Our plot seems to have a nice wee microclimate where we miss most of the rain that heads up the glen, just enjoyed a very dry (by Scottish standards) summer. It can get quite windy so we've replaced the horse-hair external ropes (our yurt is a second hand import from Mongolia) with plastic coated wire washing lines (strong but cheap) and tied the lattice to the platform with eyelet screws. We work away so needed to know it wouldn't shift anywhere!

Ahh ok. The climate here is much drier but we get many feet of snow. I think you will enjoy the yurt, especially with a wood stove which will do its job keeping the

moisture

at bay.

We have finally taken the second step towards a vacation yurt. First was buy the land. Now we have a road and a place cleared for it. Only the deer have now claimed it as their own.



Many more steps to go.
