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 !

Trakke Transforms Ancient Yurt into a Packable Round House That Pops Up Anywhere for the Everyday Adventurer Created by Trakke in collaboration with eponymous designer Uula Jero and rapid prototyping workshop Maklab, the final design for Jero Yurt took years of research and development. The collaboration kicked off in 2010 after Trakke founder Alec Farmer, who was living in an 8′ Microhouse in Glasgow, met Uula, who had previously lived in a basic prototype of the packable yurt concept. Designed for easy assembly without additional tools, the lightweight and portable Jero structure offers over 130 square feet of space beneath a 15-ounce cotton canvas cover.

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.

Portable Yurts from Go-Yurt We used to scoff at yurts as being a bit crunchy granola for TreeHugger, but have become quite fond of them after seeing how light a footprint they have, and how comfortable they can be. While the Mongolians developed the yurt as a form of mobile housing, most we have seen are have been permanently installed. Howie Oakes spent years developing a truly portable yurt, and his own words explain it better than I could: "I have been interested in nomadic homes for a long time, and became fascinated with the yurt after weathering a number of Burning Man dust storms in a small yurt that a friend built. I started looking into what was available, and saw that the typical western yurt had moved well beyond its roots as a truly nomadic home. "I have been focused for many years on designing a truly portable yurt. A typical Western yurt will only be setup a handful of times (most only once, according to an employee of a large yurt company I spoke with). See also Yurta: The Optimized Yurt, Yurts.

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.
