Wish List: Yurt-tastic!

Howie Oakes spent years developing a truly portable yurt, and his own words explain it better than I could:

"I have been interested in nomadic homes for a long time, and became fascinated with the yurt after weathering a number of Burning Man dust storms in a small yurt that a friend built. I started looking into what was available, and saw that the typical western yurt had moved well beyond its roots as a truly nomadic home. I think that these yurts do indeed make excellent low impact housing, but I wanted a yurt that my family could easily transport and setup wherever we went."

Playa perfect...TOTALLY want!


  1. Damn, this is also going on my want list, I've been looking for a yurt that I could reasonably put together in a day, and this looks like it fits the bill. Still a little pricey, but it appears to be well made and worth it. Until I can afford it however, I'll have to settle for the Treepee
