Welcome to Smiling Woods Yurts
Next Generation Yurts: Hand-crafted Round Home Solutions
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, that is energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing we offer solutions that may be just what you're looking for.
Living in the round offers an opportunity to find ourselves more in harmony with the natural rhythms of life. When we look around in our world we see that all things in Nature are round - the Earth is round, the Sun and Moon are round, the seasons and cycles of life go around. The experience of living in a round home helps bring our lives into balance – embracing and nurturing, expansive and inviting, the ingredients for a harmonious and simpler lifestyle.
Thank you for visiting. Please enjoy your experience as you explore Smiling Woods Yurts!
May our actions always encourage peace
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.
“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.”
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.
“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.

“Thank you once again for finding time to fit us into your busy schedule.”
