A handful of Biome off-grid yurts have been installed throughout Gatineau Park in Québec, Canada, as an accommodation solution for outdoor enthusiasts who want to extend their stay in the park.
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.

Better yet, even though you’re in the woods you can still get to town (Amersfoort) in just a few minutes using a bicycle. When you go inside the cabin, you’ll find a wonderful open living area with a kitchen. At night, the living area converts into a bedroom. When you go in the kitchen, be sure to notice how they designed and built the space saving table for the home.
The couches double as beds and the bathroom is the only other room in the house which also doubles as a laundry room. And by the way, this tiny yurt-like cottage is available as a vacation rental through Airbnb. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
The yurt sleeps two adults and two kids using a queen mattress and a blow up mattress for the kids. Nearby is a modern bathhouse and barn with a modern kitchen. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
It’s a 16′ prefabricated log cabin with a dome shape. It also has an enclosed entryway. So what do you think about turning this structure into your own dream tiny home? If you’d like, let us know in the comments and either way please enjoy and re-share below.
What happens when you combine the shape and size of a yurt home with the durability and sturdiness of a cabin? You get these innovative Freedom Yurt-Cabins, which have many of the benefits of a cabin at a reduction of the cost.
Ranging from about $12,000 to $17,000—which the manufacturing company points out can be even cheaper than purchasing a traditional, fabric-walled yurt—Freedom Yurt-Cabins come in three different sizes ranging from 217 square feet to 387 square feet. The yurt-cabins also contain insulation in the walls and roof, windows, and an awning over the door to the structure.
What is particularly interesting about these yurt-cabins is that they can be customized to fit your needs and wants. Aside from size, you can purchase additional features such as an extra window, a tinted dome, and a fan mount. Because the structures are made of finished wood, you can also paint the yurt-cabin however you like.
This is a yurt-like micro cabin with a studio layout in the Portland, Oregon area. It’s really more like a Thoreau-cabin because it’s basically a bedroom with a desk. In other words, there’s no kitchen and bath but if you stay here you do get access to a private bathroom in the main house.
Plus you can also use the kitchen in the main house but you have to share it with the owners (and it’s a vegan only kitchen). So take a look at it below and let me know what you think. I don’t think it would be very hard to do an add-on kitchen and bath. You could also just use another structure for that and connect it all via deck.
