Tal and Nao’s Rainforest Wooden-Yurt
From the outside, it looks like a round cabin but the interior still looks exactly like a yurt with canvas covers, lattice walls, and wooden roof rafters.
The yurt is inspired by Elvin architecture from The Lord of the Rings, with some intricately hand-carved elements including the impressive front door and the spiral staircase.
The open concept interior is bright and filled with plants, and it’s also a fully functional living space with a full kitchen, dining room, bathroom, living room, and two sleeping spaces.
The kitchen is large enough to cook a feast and there is a live-edge bar and a full-size dining table for hosting guests.
The first sleeping space is up in the loft in the center of the yurt, directly below the dome skylight. Isn’t it beautiful?
There’s another bedroom in the addition that was built onto the left side of the yurt.
Take a full tour with the owners, Tal and Nao, to discover more about the yurt and their passion for facilitating a connection between the human world and the natural world.
