She has been living in a yurt for about 3 years. At 9,300 feet in rural Colorado.
She has been writing about her life there for the last few months and showing everyone pictures and videos of what it’s like.
When she was getting her construction approved by her local building department the staff there found her to be quite unique so she eventually became known as the yurt lady, hence the name of her blog.
Her website has tips for those interested in living in a yurt as well–information on staying warm, insulating, construction time, windows, doors, and dealing with wind.
She started out like most of us–tired of cleaning an over-sized home. Eventually her path led to a 10 acre property right next to a national forest where she’s living in now, in her yurt.
She’s been living in a 16′ yurt to try things out and she’s currently in the process of constructing her larger 30′ yurt. You can sort of see the process in this picture…
I love stories like this so I wanted to share it on here. Enjoy some of the pictures here and then go visit the Yurt Lady yourself and say hello. I’m looking forward to keeping up with her progress through her blog.
