"Living in our Smiling Woods yurt is a dream come true.  It is even better than we imagined.  Both Smiling Woods and our designer/builder Matthew Smith were great to work with, creating a custom yurt with an additional 2 bedrooms and a bathroom."

"Having never built much of anything before, we found the Smiling Woods kit to be a totally reasonable and straightforward project. The area was cleared in May, the floor built in June, the kit arrived in July, and at Thanksgiving we hosted a group of 12 for a big turkey feast in the cabin. We now have a beautiful place just minutes from great skiing, climbing, hiking, and biking. Most weekends throughout the year either we or our friends are using it as a getaway from the city, and look forward to doing so for many years to come. "

"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."

"Smiling Woods produced a well-constructed kit with clear instructions.  The kit arrived when he promised.  It took two of us about two weeks to completely set up the kit including the custom ceiling and roof insulation. I'm very happy with the purchase I made from Smiling Woods."

Joseph S. - Sierras, California


"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."

Marni W. - Lincoln, Vermont


"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."

Daniel W. - Killbuck, Ohio


"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."
