What's Not In A Kit?

Contracting & Labor

We ship your kit to your build location, but Smiling Woods does not offer contracting or labor. We provide a Build Manual and can answer questions you or your contractor may have while assembling the kit. In some instances, your designer may be available for on-site consulting and project management. Our team can provide a list of contractors in your area with familiarity in building Smiling Woods Yurts.


We can design your kit to fit any foundation (piers, perimeter, slab, and more). Different areas require different foundations, so our designers and engineering partners will work with you to design the best foundation for your yurt. We can work with many challenging conditions, such as hillsides and flood plains.


Unfortunately, we do not offer financing, but are happy to connect you with partners who are familiar with financing round homes. Most of our customers use a Construction Loan from a trusted lender to acquire financing (if this will be your primary home), or a HELOC (for second homes). We will provide sample engineering plans to secure this loan.

Utilities & Trades

We will work with you to modify the structure to prepare for your utility connections. However, insulation, electrical, and plumbing trades or materials are not included in a Smiling Woods kit.

Interior Finishing

We provide detailed plans for your desired layout. Interior walls, drywall, tile, hardwood flooring, cabinetry, and other interior finish items are not included in a Smiling Woods kit. But our designers can provide detailed materials lists and interior design plans for you or your contractor.
