Wall Height     Doors     Windows & Skylight

Browsing through our kit options, you will find the specifics of what comes standard with our kits and what options are available to make you yurt just how you would like it to be. I encourage you to decide what you would like for your yurt and then see how much it changes the cost of the structure. I think you may be pleasantly surprised with just how minimal an impact on the overall cost of the project your changes will have!

Add more doors or more windows, make changes to the skylight. These options as well as increasing the wall height are all possibilities with our kits.


 With this in mind we encourage you to design/create a floor plan that will best suit your needs. A plan that describes -

The placement of the door(s) and the direction they open, what side the hinge is on and the door type (half light, full light, solid or custom).

The window placement - their size, height in the wall from the floor and whether they open or not.

Interior walls, if there are any.

On the downloads page you will find blank floor plan drawings. Choose the drawing for the size yurt you're interested in and get started designing your space.

Ideas for additions, A sample floor plan and the helpful  Designing Your Space documents are also in the downloads section of our website to help with your design process.

Adding rooms onto the yurt or building a loft are both possibilities. Taller walls allow for a more comfortable ceiling height for both a loft and are basically necessary for additions. If you are considering either a loft or room additions as a possibility for the future, but not planning on building them now please let us know, we will provide you with information to help you plan for them. It is much better to include future changes in your design, than to have to try and figure out how to make things work later on.

Browse through our kit options and see what you may like to change or add to your yurt package to create the space that works best for you.
