Default What is going on in your yurtiverse?

It is that busy time of year when those of us who don't live year round in our yurts are busy. I have been spending any free time I can up at my camp getting things ready for the warmer weather. I have unrolled most of the window coverings because holding in heat is no longer a priority. We have changed all the bedding to lighter blankets for the summer season.

On the outside, we have been clearing brush and installing some more solar lighting outside. This weekend my wife and I are going up, mostly just to sit back and relax a little and charge up the batteries.

What about you guys?

Wishing there was something sitting on that platform right now. But I did mow around it, so it looks less derelict.

We had a busy season, both in business and in our personal lives. We welcomed our first child, a little girl, into the world and are expecting a positively HUGE shipment of yurts to arrive for sorting in just a few weeks.

In the meantime we've been drafting, permitting, building platforms, doing site prep... whew!

With the good business we expect to have the bathroom and kitchen installed at the office yurt by Christmas. I'm even considering splurging and adding one of those lovely cedar sauna kits for a couple grand. During the cold, drizzly, Volcano Village days we get around here, that just sounds like heaven~~~

That's what's up in our Yurtiverse, thanks for asking!

Heading into town in the morning to pick up a new

tension cable

from pet smart.my daughter got one for her dog they come in 12- 24- 50 foot lengths and have slide catches on both ends plastic coated cable looked to be at least 1/4 inch, I am also going to pick up paint thinner and silicon for water proofing the roof. I am going to set it back up in the meadow for the kids and family that want to spend some time on the mountain.I managed to get Friday the 5th off so going to make a four day week end out of it.

No yurtiverse yet, but have the hubby and kiddo at least open to the idea. Hubby thinks we are getting too old to think about yurt living and thinks we will want the creature comforts of the more traditional. Still researching....still have yurt fever....

Looks like we will be going down to the cabin for the 4th and staying until Sunday. Looks like we are going to put the yurt back up in the meadow already bought the new cable and im going to pick some water proofing for the roof.going with silicone and turpentine when we took it down the neighbors dogs ran all over the roof cover and made some toe nail punctures. im sure this will take care of them and water proof it for at least a year or two. And if we have visitors they will have their own place.

We have had a record year so far in our yurtiverse. We increased our production capacity at the start of 2013- and have been filling every spot. We've had continued good press with magazines, newspapers and television shows catching on to yurts and our company. Things are rocking here in Colorado... today- we are loading Melissa's large order to ship to Hawaii.
