The Yurt Is Up!!


The Yurt Is Up!!

Yes, it's true! The moment has finally arrived! Our yurt is up!

We thought the rain at the start of last week was going to hamper our yurt building efforts. The builders managed to get the floor down, but we weren't sure if we would get a solid run of a few days of unbroken good weather to put up the yurt all in one go. 

Here are the builders completing the floor ...

As soon as the floor was finished, we moved all the windows, doors, lattices and rafters to the site ...

Luckily the weather cleared, and the forecast was for a weekend of clear dry weather. This was the time!!! It was all hands on deck, as our yurt starting going up. Here are the lattice yurt walls and doors being put in place ... 

It was then time for the ceiling compression ring to be put up, followed by the yurt roof rafters ... 

Next stage was the roof liner. Here's Bill helping to keep it all together ... 

Joshua getting the roof liner in place ...

The final roof layer going on over the insulation …

The outside walls going on ... 

Doesn't it look great already? We are amazed and excited! Thanks to our great building team, and for all of you tuning in to follow the progress and offer so much support. 

Here's a short video of the inside so far. Enjoy!

Until next week,

Marilyn and Bill.
