Based on the Mongolian Yurt (or Ger), my Yurts are constructed from clear treated timber (Redwood) and some rather special canvas. This can be either 12oz Poly Cotton canvas (for the larger yurts) or 15oz Cotton canvas (for the smaller...) This is Rot Proofed and Fire Retardant, and is Waterproofed to a Hydrostatic Head of 60cm - which means that I have 50% more waterproofing than is standard amongst yurt builders. Also, my Cotton canvas has additional UV proofing which makes them more suitable for use in sunnier climates - i.e. Southern Europe, and at the time of writing, no-one else uses canvas proofed to this level - I have it specially made for me to exceed the BS Standards to ensure a longer life.
Our yurts come in sizes from 10ft in diameter, up to, at present, 44ft, and can be used for a multitude of purposes! So far they have been bedrooms, art studios and galleries, offices, workshops, and even a cricket pavillion!
Also, please look at the links page of our website to see what some of our customers are doing with their yurts - some are for hire on site, some will bring their yurts to your venue for parties, weddings, or just for friends and relations to sleep in. It is great to see that others are able to use our yurts for their businesses!
Schools are also using our yurts as classrooms, especially through the Forest Schools outdoor learning scheme.
The smaller yurts can be erected by 1 person in about and hour, and will fit onto the roofrack of a small family car.
They provide an excellent space to stay, entertain, work, or to just chill out in!
They can be constructed to cater for a woodburning stove which make these tents usable 12 months of the year!
This is Rowan and Morags 14ft Yurt on holiday a couple of years ago. The coloured canvas costs a little extra, but looks quite effective!
