Yurtstory: the history of yurts ancient and modern. By becky kemery, author of YURTS: Living in the Round Many, many years ago-centuries ago, in fact-there lived a people with oak colored skin and almond eyes, herders on horseback and camel who followed sheep and goats and yak across ancient grasslands at the top of the world.

Yurtstory: the history of yurts ancient and modern

Theirs was a land of bitter extremes, wind-swept steppes bounded by jagged peaks, long winters cold beyond imagining that melted into short green grassy summers when the herds multiplied and there was milk and meat in abundance. Long before the time of Christ, before Buddha and Mohammed, these tribes held a belief in the sacredness of all things and the need to keep a balance-balance between the world of people and the world of nature, and with the worlds above and below. Everything they did reflected this belief. Trees were scarce, so the herders drew from their animals to create shelter.

The original word for “nomad” came from a word for felt, making the nomads “felt people”. Designocalm — Mickey Muennig  California glass domed Greenhouse... Yurt homes. Wattle & Daub Yurt. Posted by Jeffrey | Posted in Earthen Yurt | Posted on 23-06-2012 Tags: aprovecho, bamboo, daub, earthen, kiko denzer, natual building, reciprocal roof, wattle, wattle and daub, yurt Project led by: Kiko Denzer Location: Aprovecho, Cottage Grove, OR Date: August 2012 This earthen yurt was built as part of the ‘sustainable shelter series’ at Aprovecho. The yurt is made from site harvested bamboo, lashed together using recycled bailers twine.

It features a reciprocal roof, meaning that every beam is supported by all the beams in front, and in turn supports all behind it. The beauty of the yurt is the circular space it contains, we live so often in box shaped houses with box shaped rooms. The project made me think a lot about the underused power of the circle in architecture and society. The bamboo framework The bamboo framework anchors into the deck The wattle is woven into the yurt framework, notice the tire which aided the raising of the reciprocal roof. Gotta Getta Ger (Yurt) We have the land.

Gotta Getta Ger (Yurt)

We have a house we are selling. Our next step is to move all our stuff and us over TO the land and build our home. Although we love to camp, and in recent history here in Texas, we could lay out all of our stuff in the naked meadow after June 1st without fear of a raindrop touching it before October, some sort of shelter seems prudent. *This article is not about LIVING in a Ger (yurt), but about the choosing, research and shopping end of the process. The assemblage and living part will be another story… Unless you have found a place with a home already on it (my last two homesteads have been one of these), or have a lot of money lying idle and can afford to build your new house while living in your old house (I’ve heard some people can actually do this, although no one in my social circle can claim such high finance), you’ll be faced with the dilemma of where to live in the ‘between time’.

Rocket Mass Heaters and Rocket Stoves at Wheaton Labs (with pics!)

A rocket mass heater is a space heating system developed from the rocket stove, an efficient cooking stove invented for and introduced in developing nations in the late 80's and early 90's to decrease fuel usage and smoke emission. The Rocket mass heater is a hybrid with elements of this efficient wood burning stove and a masonry heater. In contrast to the masonry heater, which requires advanced masonry skills, the rocket mass heater can be built by any enthusiast with basic masonry and engineering skills. A rocket mass heater can usually be put together using recycled and natural materials such as cob, bricks, rocks and a metal barrel or cylinder. The thermal storage is large enough to retain heat for many hours or even days and typically forms part of the structure of a building. The rocket mass heaters work on the same basic principles as a masonry heater. Yurta: The Optimized Yurt.
