Couple Building Modern Yurt as Super Portable Tiny Home – VIDEO

Marcin and Anissa are an inspiring couple who are designing beautiful, natural, and minimalist yurts for Yurta in Ontario, Canada.

They started their career designing lamps and emergency relief tents but transitioned to designing modern yurts when a man from the local Gatineau Park asked them to try their hand at building a lightweight and portable yurt.

They use natural materials including 100% wool felt, ash and cedar wood, and polyester cotton fabric. Their yurts fit into a 4×8″ trailer making them incredibly easy to move from place to place.

    Wonder if they’re nearby? Love yurts!

    Stove or not, I’m skeptical of how these can be sustainable when it’s -10 or -20 outside and the wind’s a’howlin’.

      They were first invented by the Mongolians, so I’m pretty sure they hold up quite nicely 🙂
