Yurts are nice, but they are not solid structures, anything falling or high wind could damage the shelter..
Modern Yurts typically have modern engineering built in, and should have a snow and wind load rating. Just ask the manufacturer to see if the Yurt complies with local building codes.
And, relatively speaking, any structure can be damaged by something falling on it or by winds if either those are big and strong enough. Many “normal” houses are damaged by high winds from a Tornado or Hurricane, for example. It is all a matter of degree. 🙂
Truth! Plus these homes originated in the himalayas, so they are pretty resistant 🙂
Love yurts. Although Claude is correct about them being not solid structures. Yurts can be built with wood or brick if one chooses.
Yes of course 🙂 I like them that way!
Again I am on unfamiliar ground, as I know very little about Yurts, and the construction of them… I know they are a nomadic peoples hut-like house from the Mongolian region of Northern Asia and that’s about it…! I do like the shape and open floor plan as it can become very diverse, with just so many different options with that open floor plan.. Which I believe to be the attractive part in living in one I would say… OH..! I do know they are well insulated and have a opening in it roof for ventilation…
Yurts are what got me into tiny homes. I think they are just the coolest 🙂 But I prefer those with wooden siding because I’d like something more permanent.
Me to…! I need something if movable to be on wheels and not fordable like a tent…
“Insulation for Alaskan winters.” Pray tell. Does the sasquatch come with it?
Can u send me plans for a 50 foot yurt
Carol Smith 910 Cowl St Unit 37 Milton-Freewater Oregon 97862
Do you know of any one using one as a second story unit over a 40’ round pen for horses? I am a builder and would like a prices on all the yurt sizes available with shipping to Juneau Ak.
yurt company’s are different in every state. AK builds their yurts to survive in AK .. this is from nomad’s website.
The Nomad Shelter lattice is structurally engineered with this added dimensional strength to support the rafters and provide 60 lbs per square foot snow loads and 100 mph wind resistance.
