untitled Build yourself a portable home - a mongolian yurt Yurt/Gher Construction 101 A guide to Building Yurts...or more specifically, how I built mine! Based on Knowledge Gained from "Doing it Myself", and reading about it on-line. I've now built three yurts, for myself and friends, and we go camping in Luxury in these a few times a year. If you like the outdoors, but you hate having to crawl around in pokey little tents then this one's for you! We sleep two of us in luxury in this tent, in a full queen-sized bed! We have dedicated hanging space for our clothes so they don't crumple or anything, and lockable boxes for our belongings (or a lock on the door works too!) When we invite other camping-inclined friends over for a party in our tent, we can confortably fit 15-20 people in, sitting around on cushions and lounging on the bed and on the rugs on the floor... now that's what I can a party tent! If you like pictures, please be sure to have a look at step 9 - it's got over 50 assembly photos on that step alone !

untitled Yurt Buildng Here is a free copy of my book Build your own yurt, written in 1995, It has been used by a great many people who have built their own yurts. Our designs have progressed enormously since 1995. For a much more comprehensive guide see The Complete Yurt Handbook or see the rest of our website A complete guide to making a Mongolian Ger by P.R. Third Edition Fully revised and expanded for 1998 Internet Edition Jan 2000 The Yurt The English word Yurt comes from the Russian Yurta describing a circular trellis walled framed tent. The Kirgiz yurt with bent-wood roof poles and crown and a domed overall shape. The two tiered yurt with a pointed roof and two layers of wall section placed one on top of the other. The Mongol or Kalmuk ger with straight roof poles, a heavy timber crown, often supported by two upright poles, and fitted with a wooden door. This proven design is equally well suited to the many uses for moveable dwellings in this country. Figure 1.

Yourtes et RT 2012 Les yourtes et la RT 2012 La RT 2012, Quezaco ? Une règlementation complexe... Un document du Ministère de l'Ecologie, de l'Energie ... et de pleins d'autres choses... daté de Juillet 2010 donnait les principes de base de la norme parmi lesquelles en page 7 : "Une plus grande liberté dans la conception des bâtiments", "Une règlementation plus simple et plus lisible". Le plan d'urgence du bâtiment annoncé par notre président en mars 2013 mentionnait les impératifs de simplifications administratives. Les différentes étapes imposées par la RT2012 2- L'étude thermique complète prend en compte les calculs déjà faits sur l'enveloppe et évalue les consommations annuelles ramenées au m2 liées aux cinq usages suivants : chauffage, climatisation, eau chaude sanitaire, ventilation, éclairage. Cette règlementation engendre des modifications assez profondes au principe constructif de la yourte traditionnelle : La RT2012 est applicable aux yourtes de La Maison Voyageuse

How about a yurt, dome or tipi as a spare room? -Low impact living info, training, products & services Here’s an interview with David Field of World Tents about how a tipi, yurt or dome could be used as a spare room in the garden. Hi David – so who might this type of ‘spare room’ be for? DF: People who want their own little private haven that they can retreat to and feel at peace – to be in their own space, undisturbed, to do their own thing. For example? DF: An art space, some kind of studio or workshop, or for meditation, yoga etc. Why especially teenagers? DF: How can I put this? What about neighbours? DF: Well, artists, meditators and yoga practitioners probably won’t make much noise – but teenagers might. How would you provide power? DF: There are several options. What about bathroom facilities? DF: If you were really keen you could have a separate yurt/dome/tipi as a compost loo / solar shower – but it may be easier to let the occupants use the facilities in the house.

Planète Chanvre - Pas de rouleaux!!! Thermo-Chanvre® est tiré du chanvre, plante historiquement utilisée pour la construction des voiles des anciens bateaux. Cette plante a la vertu d’être très rustique et de ce fait ne nécessite aucun produit chimique pour sa culture. Elle répond au défi environnemental que l’agriculture s’est fixé. Cette plante répond parfaitement aux objectifs de développement durable car, en plus de sa noble origine, les produits qui en sont issus sont très performants. Thermo-Chanvre® est composé de 82–85 % de fibres de chanvre, 10–15 % de fibres bi-constituantes et de 3–5 % de carbonate de sodium pour la protection contre le feu. Ce produit est distribué en rouleau ou en panneau de 30 à 200mm d’épaisseur. Veuillez nous contacter pour obtenir nos prix pour les différentes épaisseurs. Nous sommes un groupe d’agriculteurs de la Brie (50 km à l’est de Paris) producteurs de chanvre.

Want a Cozy, Affordable Home? Build A Yurt In 1996, I bought 10 acres in Saranac Lake, N.Y. At the time, I was living in Pennsylvania, but I had visited small town New York several years before while visiting Paul Smith Forestry College, and I had always wanted to return. Following the death of my father and getting divorced, it seemed a good time to start on my dream. Until I was able to move to Saranac Lake permanently, I worked many hours at a utility company and spent my vacations camping on the land with my two kids. Getting Started In 2009, when the company I was working for scaled down, I accepted a good severance package and decided to cash out and move to my land. I laid out plans for the deck and base for my yurt. To grade part of the property and pull out some tree stumps, I rented a track hoe. That July, I laid out my lines for the yurt and started digging post holes. The Community Chips In After I figured out how to stabilize the first post, I continued digging away a little each day.

SM Bois, negoce de bois specialiste terrasse bois, bardage et parquet. Building A Yurt From Scratch: Resources Yurts (and more interestingly to us, Gers) are front and center on the Milkwood research table currently. We’ve identified these structures as a likely cost-effective, climate-appropriate solution for our coming need for weatherproof, windproof, cosy crew-space come Spring at the Farm. While there’s many solutions to easily yurt oneself if you have a reasonable budget ($8-$10,000), we need to find a solution more in the DIY realm. So we have searched far and wide, and here’s what we’ve come up with in terms of build-it-yourself-from-scratch Yurt and Ger resources. Firstly I should clarify that I do mean a Yurt. A really truly, portable, cosy, weatherproof structure that, once the pieces are fully assembled, can be set up or pulled down in a couple of hours. More precisely, we’re looking at resources to aid us to build a Ger. Lower roof means easier heating, and warm crew quicker, with less wood burned, on a windy rainy night.
