Default Unknown Manufacturer

Is there a way to determine a yurt’s manufacturer? The current owner is not the person who bought the kit & built the yurt. She bought it years ago & has no way to contact the original owner/builder. The

dome

/ skylight may need to be replaced before winter, but she has no idea which company to contact. I haven’t seen any obvious labeling, but I haven’t done a thorough search.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I can take some, but what structural details are likely to be useful? Am guessing the skylight? Maybe the way the lattice is attached?
Sorry - I clearly know very little about yurts aside from this older one.

The

center ring

and the

dome

. The front door and the windows. The rafters too. A shot from the outside might help too..

Thanks, Jafo!
I can’t take detailed photos until later in the week. Have posted an exterior shot in my album.

It looks like you have those long, pull up windows but need better pics. If so, could be a colorado yurt or a Rainer.

Hope these additional photos help. The yurt’s been used as a rental for several years, & hasn’t had a lot of TLC.

I really appreciate your willingness to help, Jafo.

Looking at your pictures here, I'm afraid I do not have any idea who may have manufactured it. Others may have an idea.

the frame and roof is like early 2000 version from

Yurts of America

. The 3 layer ring and bullnosed rafters is one of our trade marks.

It took me a second to notice behind the window photo there was another outer wall there.

It is a

Yurts of America

yurt from around 2000 - 2004. It's great to see that it's still going strong. Though the current outer wall isn't ours.
