Default Two yurts connected with a corridor

For anyone's who is interested, I am sharing my plans of two 7m yurts, connected with a corridor and a bathroom between them.

This solution makes sense in my eyes to keep

moisture

, which is produced in the bathroom, out of the Yurt.

Tell a little bit more about the bathroom is build (material,

heating

, ....).

You don't have it pictured here, but if you are in a heavy snow zone, don't forget to take that into account when designing this. That snow has to slide off the roof. From your pic it looks like the entry to the outside door in the corridor would a bit hazardous in those conditions. The snow from both yurts would slide together right at the entrance.

It's a good start for a conceptual outline, thanks for sharing!

Some things to consider: what style roof is on that addition? Shed style, gable, full hip, salt box, those are most common and for good reasons. Shed style is least attractive but cheapest. Gable or salt box is a nice in-between for looks and cost.

What are your connection points, if any, between soft wall and hard wall? That wood frame structure against the soft wall structure, what is happening there? Step down from the yurts into that middle building? And will you do more of a 3 season room for that hallway or?

Some people design as they go, I've done that myself. Happy to share some tips as someone who has done a lot of projects that are more involved than the basic 1 yurt set up.

I like the island and loft best!

Going to be simple timber frame, insulated, heating will be electric heater most likely.

I am in Portugal, and it never snows where i'm at. We do get a lot of rain and also wind though.

These are good points, haven't considered yet the roof style, will definitely write back after we decide and build

These are good questions, the corridor base is connected directly to the octagon beneath. As far as the walls of the corridor, they will be connected to the door frames of the yurts on each side. That is the only connection point I have.
As you can see in the picture, there's a small gap between the yurts and the start of the wall of the bathroom (20cm). This gap should allow easy access to the yurts canvas in that narrow point and also proper drainage from the roof and enough ventilation. You will have to step down from the yurt to the corridor.

One thing that I do need to consider is strong winds - Yurts round shapes are great for withstanding strong winds as the wind just "slide off" the yurts. What I'm doing here is increasing the surface area and creating a "bay" for the wind to pick up and possibly affect the stability of the yurts. I don't think it will be very much, but it is a point to consider that it does reduce the strength of the yurts overalll
