Hi, Ken,

I’m still learning how to navigate this forum - got your PM & replied before I saw this post.
I think what looks like another wall behind the green wall in the window picture is the blanket that’s hung behind the screen to reduce the wind coming through the open window. There’s only 1 “layer”of outer wall. Since we can’t contact the original owner / builder, not sure where the walll came from if not purchased from you, but based on some of the non-kit “interesting” construction details, like the front steps, I shouldn’t be surprised by anything that’s, shall we say, non-standard.
Thanks again!

Thanks for looking at the photos, Jafo. I knew going it that it was a long shot, and appreciate your help. Luckily, I think Ken has ID’d it.

looks like one of ours, the only reason Im not 100% is the outwall, the window doesn't match our old design, so maybe the old owners got a new wall from someone else

NO problem, I am jazzed to see one of my yurts hitting the 12 to 15 years out of warranty and still going strong.

Definitely a Great American/Yurts of America yurt - Back when

Yurts of America

was called Great American Yurts. It looks more like circa 2006 to me, that's when we worked with them for a bit. They're easy to spot because it was before they were doing domes, so you have that central cross piece that holds up a soft cover over the compression ring. No one else has done that in what I've seen. The doors are very recognizable too, they did a curved header and a frame, then that separate vinyl door with the small panes would be installed into the frame at the very end. Those years had some issues with corkscrewing, where the ring would spin and the rafters could come out of the ring. I'd recommend taking a good look at that and fixing it asap if it is occurring there. Had one of those come down on me and a crew. Luckily no one was majorly hurt.

Yurts of America

has corrected those issues in their designs today. From what I hear they're doing a pretty good yurt these days.

Over and Out~.
