Hi all,

My family built a yurt on the family compound for my sister-in-law. Here is a time lapse video my son made showing it going up.

It was not to hard to build, and a lot of fun.  She plans to put in a composting toilet, and small sink with a grey water system.  Still have to run electricity.  For cooking, showers etc, she will use the main house.

looks nice. Yurts like to be lived in. well, dry inside anyway. They don't make good cottages for weekends or summers only, in general. Sounds like someone will be living there though, so it should work out good.
