With 930 sq. feet, the Ponderosa Thirty-Five is a perfect starting point for a small family home. The main yurt body can easily accommodate a kitchen, living room, bathroom, and a nice bedroom.

Complete packageRoof Package Only
The Roof Only Package includes everything in the Complete Package minus the walls. A Wall Building manual and video tutorial are included.

The Roof Only Package is only for those interested in putting a conical roof on an alternative round structure or for those with considerable carpentry skills and want to build their own walls.

Keep in mind that hiring someone to build the walls will result in higher costs and an inferior product. The quality of materials we use and the machining done in our shop ensures a solid build not available in the field.
