Welcome to Smiling Woods Yurts
It is our pleasure to offer you these beautiful and comfortable round homes
We are a family and friend owned and operated business in Washington's beautiful Methow Valley. We offer thoughtfully-crafted building solutions for those seeking the experience of living in the round.
If you are considering building a new home and have a desire for a structure that will feed your soul as well as provide shelter and is energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing we offer solutions that match meet your needs.
Living in the round offers the opportunity in which we can find ourselves more in harmony with the natural rhythms of life. If we look around we see that all things in Nature are round - the Earth is round, the Sun and Moon are round, the seasons go round as do the cycles of life.The experience of living in a round home helps bring our lives into balance – while being embracing and nurturing it is also expansive and inviting. Living in the round offers the opportunity for a harmonious and simpler lifestyle.
Thank you for stopping in. Please enjoy your experience imagining living in the round.
May our actions always encourage peace
Thank You for your help in loading the roof kit with me. In the rush to get the roof kit loaded before the rain I forgot to tell you what a great job you did on the construction of the roof kit. The compression ring and rafters are very well done, my wife and I are very impressed with your craftsmanship. Great job, thank you for the care you take in your work.
“Everyone who walks into this house is completely in awe. We had my boss over for dinner Friday night and she commented, “Why doesn’t everyone build something like this?” The guy who installed our TV satellite last weekend commented, “I’ve been in so many different houses, including multi-million dollar homes, but this place … this place just gives me goose bumps!” 🙂 Thanks for helping us realize our dream, Michael.”
We both love our home. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. We are awfully proud of our yurt and like to show it off to people. If you are ever in this part of the country stop by. Would love to show you around.
“Thank you for the hard work and devotion to quality you brought to the creation of my home… This is a nurturing space as well as a thing of beauty…Working with you and your son was a very positive experience…Thank you most of all for giving me a way to participate in the building of my home…you have provided a way for an ordinary person to be very involved in the very basic and primal need to create shelter… I could not have asked for more.” Margaret M. Auburn, CA
“Thank you once again for finding time to fit us into your busy schedule.”
