Freedom Yurt Cabins and the Tiny House Blog In my experience writing about Tiny Houses over the last decade, I have seen hundreds of beautifully crafted and elegantly designed tiny houses. The Tiny House movement has succeeded in grabbing the attention of millions in this country and around the world.

The Nomad Yurt by EcoShack *notcot in home+decor , 00:44 The Nomad Yurt by EcoShack. I try to settle down, i try to find a “home” and stay put, but i seldom last more than a year. I’m a socal girl who’s home is in her car, on the road, or bouncing between hotel rooms and friends’ places around the world… I suppose i’m a modern day digital nomad. A digi-nomad that needs a yurt! The one object i walked away from CA Boom V lusting after and itching to drop $8000 on is the Nomad Yurt… it breaks down and pops up in under a half hour (depending how many friends you have), and gives you an instant 120 square feet of calm, shady, cozy privacy, with a nice woody platform (don’t worry about what the ground is like around you like most yurts), a light sturdy bamboo structure, and weatherMAX covering.
Yurts Based on the Mongolian Yurt (or Ger), my Yurts are constructed from clear treated timber (Redwood) and 2oz Poly Cotton canvas. This is Rot Proofed and Fire Retardant, and is Waterproofed to a Hydrostatic Head of 60cm. Our yurts come in sizes from 10ft in diameter, up to, at present, 44ft, and can be used for a multitude of purposes! So far they have been bedrooms, art studios and galleries, offices, workshops, and even a cricket pavillion!

GoYurt Shelters : Truly Portable Yurts The GoYurt Story The first yurt we spent time in was on a hot, dusty playa at Burning Man. A friend from Oregon brought one he had built using a lot of found materials. About fourteen feet, with hand cut bamboo for the roof poles and an old bicycle wheel for the roof ring, it was a unique take on a yurt.
