Adding wood to a lattice style yurt will only weaken the structure. They are designed to flex and wood sides or roof are rigid. They also aren't designed for that kind of weight. A well manufactured yurt is typically rated for winds up to 120 mph. You will need to go with a top manufacturer,

Colorado Yurts

are always too of my recommendations for quality, engineering, and stellar customer support. The engineering portion is important if you want to permit. To get

insurance

, most carriers want permits and engineering. Aloha,

Beats the heck out of me. Good luck.

I've lived through two hurricanes in Louisiana back in the late 50s. I built a yurt and it is solidly anchored to a deck and to several concrete ground anchors. FYI, any yurt exposed to a real hurricane is gonna be 'Gone With the Wind'. Wall covering won't make a whit of difference. It'll be shredded. It's a tent, not a concrete blockhouse. Even a yurt solidly anchored at every lath cross to a concrete pad, and with the roof rafters lashed to the ground, is gonna be destroyed. Believe me.

Don't let the stop you from building your yurt. However if you do so, and know a 4 or 5 category hurricane is gonna pass through, you need to evacuate the area, or at least get to real substantial shelter.

My wife and I live in northern Utah and just ordered a Colorado Yurt to pitch in Idaho (confused on where we’re doing what yet? Us too). It’s been a couple years since there have been posts here on

insurance

updates and I just wanted to check and see if anyone has any new info. USAA still does nothing with yurts unfortunately. Thanks!
