These contemporary yurts have a propane fridge and BBQ, a solar panel, and a wood stove. The structure is made with a wooden trellis, weatherproof canvas, and a dome skylight at the centre which provides ample natural light. During warmer months, the dome can be lifted with a metal crank rod to allow fresh air to enter, and heat to escape.
Mat and Danielle from Exploring Alternatives think this yurt could be an interesting tiny house alternative based on its (relative) portability and affordability, as well as the fact that yurts are considered a temporary structure in many municipalities. The interior design and floor plan could easily be adapted for a more cozy, homey atmosphere instead of the current utilitarian setup. You can see a video tour and photos of the yurt below.
