Welcome to Smiling Woods Yurts
We are a small family-owned and operated business in Washington's enchanting Methow Valley, offering thoughtfully-crafted building solutions for those seeking the experience of living in the round.
It is with pleasure that we offer our beautiful, comfortable and affordable round homes.
As you browse our site you will see what simple living and 35 years of building experience, involved mostly in the design and construction of unique homes, cabinetry and fine furniture, has to offer you.
It is our intention to help you to create a beautiful, functional, and affordable space and to offer information to help you make choices that you will want to live with, both environmentally and aesthetically.
Environmental stewardship is a high priority for us; we use environmentally-responsible materials and practices whenever possible.
A round space is unique in that it mimics Nature. All things in Nature are round - the Earth is round, the Sun and Moon are round, the seasons go round. We do not see nor experience square in Nature. As such living in the round offers the opportunity to find ourselves more in tune with the natural way of life. It is truly a lifestyle choice and brings with it many subtle gifts. One not so subtle gift is the spaciousness experienced. Another the ability for the building to naturally and easily maintain an even temperature being more easy to cool in the Summer and easier to heat in the Winter.
We invite you to experience our introduction to round living while on your journey through our website.
