We do not offer or sell plans for the roof or roof construction itself. The reason for this being that the roof is a highly engineered design and building the roof kit is a detailed process requiring special tooling, jigs and patterns to make it as accurately as needed.
BASIC ENGINEERED PLANS
(not included in the kit price)
If you need engineered stamped drawings in order to get a building permit, we can create plans that will match the wind, snow load and seismic specifications for your building location. Engineerd plans for the basic round yurt meeting our minimum specifications (100 mph wind, 100# snow etc.) start at $650 for Washington State and go up from there depending on the state and engineer we need to use for your project. (This price is for a basic round yurt structure, no additions, porches or other special details required for the engineering. For other designs and engineering please see below).
In order to build a set of plans we will need to know the requirements for wind, snow and seismic specific to your building site. Contact your local building department for this information.
We have engineers on board for all 50 states as well as Canada. Some states require an additonal fee for the stamped plans (usually $250) and Cananda $500-$600 more for the stamp.
CUSTOM DESIGNS AND ENGINEERING
Site specific engineering and drawings can be created for whatever design you would like. Pricing for plans that require more drafting or engineering than the basic round structure are created at an hourly rate, starting with the basic round yurt plans price. As a guideline, a set of plans for a yurt with a very simple floor plan and room additions will not increase the price dramatically but a floor plan with a basement, loft and additions can run quite a bit more for the drafting and engineering, all this depending on your states requirements.
We are happy to review your floor plans and offer suggestions, if you like. Any designing time spent beyond a simple review is done at the rate of $75hr.
We are very efficient with our design/drafting time and generally speaking, costs for drawing up your floor plan for your review is no more than a $100. This floor plan will be used in your engineered plans you will present to your building department.
At our discretion, even if a set of engineered plans are not needed for your area, we may require special engineering for your yurt if the design and layout of windows and doors exceeds the parameters of our existing generic engineering.
