Sharing our wooden yurt building experience and more.
My first post is going to be playing catch up with the photos I’ve taken since the end of August. We will follow with more photos, different phases of the building, materials used and why, and what everything cost. We will be very specific in listing every little thing we can think of.
This yurt kit was custom made for us by http://www.smilingwoodsyurts.com in Eastern Washington. They are a small family owned business and use as much local sustainable materials as possible. They worked very closely with us in making the changes we requested. It’s designed and built by Matthew Smith of Dream. Design. Build. of Indianola, WA, with the build help of Corbin and Chris. Chris has moved onto another project but was there for when the main yurt kit went up. They are doing an AMAZING job as you will see in the photos below. Matthew is working with us in using the products we’ve researched and selected that are truly sustainable and healthy. The yurt kit has an add on of 2 bedrooms and a bath. We also decided to put our own windows and 3 light tubes, adding a window seat in the main room as well.

Make sure you check out the two story yurt he built for him and his family. It’s very cool!
Thanks for looking!
