Letters of Appreciation
A LITTLE HISTORY!
The creation of our yurts has been an interesting process. Starting a business was never the intention! Some spare time and materials coupled with a longstanding interest in living in the round and looking for a simple way to create a comfortable round home were the motivating forces. How deeply involved a process it would be was never forseen!
The first yurt was just a concept,and started with the idea that there must be a more aesthetic and functional way to build a yurt. The original challenge was to find a way to have real windows you could open from the inside, walls you could build cabinets to and hang pictures on and a way to insulate the yurt effectively.
All along the focus has been on having a great design, affordability and environmental friendliness. Some aspects have been quite challenging.
~ The metal roof allowed us to have a long lasting, environmentally friendly roofing solution.
~ Taller rafters offered a way to have a healthy, environmentally responsible roof insulation system.
~ Our greatest and most rewarding challenge was having the roof engineered to meet almost anything Mother Nature can send its way!
~ Once the roof design became simple to set up we were able to offer you our roof kits seperately putting the project more in your hands and hopefully making building even more affordable.
We are thankful for the answers to the challenges that have come our way.
As time has gone on our yurts have become small round houses and most of our customers are building them as homes and other permanent living spaces. Folks are adding on decks, porches, room additions and even hooking them together in tandem with a breezeway! Their similarity to a fabric yurt, from whence to idea came, is only in form.
It has been and is an awesome thing to be a part of the creation of such wonderful spaces.
Our basic intention as a business is to create the best possible structures with the best materials available. We use the most environmentally/user friendly products and materials and continue to research options to make our yurts as earth and user friendly as possible. We want our lives to be as healthy as possible - physically, mentally and emotionally (not to mention spiritually!) and as such keep a healthy work space and work relationships that reflects these values. We want the same for you as well.
It is and will continue to be our intention to help you to create a beautiful, functional and affordable space and to provide information that can help you make environmental and aesthetic choices you will want to live with. We believe that everyone should be able to afford to have a beautiful place to call home, however simple or humble.
LETTERS OF APPRECIATION
"Thank you once again for finding time to fit us into your busy schedule."
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.
