We Make Cedar Yurts!

Handcrafted Cedar Yurts specializing in replacing or upgrading soft wall yurts

What do you do when your soft wall yurt starts to leak?

From 1 single yurt to as many as you want, take a look at the difference.

This is a typical soft wall yurt 12 years old.

This is our insulated log cedar yurt. Good for 80 years.

We have spent 7,000 hours over 3 years working with engineers, architects and builders to develop a well-insulated yurt (a round house), which fits many situations and budgets.

The logs stand vertically, creating a circle house, but they can also be laid horizontally, creating a conventional log home. Each log is engineered using kiln-dried wood, the results of an engineered log are no settling and no splitting.

For the circle house, the floor arrives in fully-insulated sections. The roof is a standing seam metal roof.

NOT cheap, but neither is the impression it leaves. NEVER smells musty and you can extend your season for snowmobilers, ice fishing and more.

The inside offers the same options, standard windows and doors as well as garden doors and you can have as many windows as you want.

You may have a loft for the children or for quiet times of reflection.

Lay back with a good book or simply gaze out at the stars through your center bubble. A house isn't a yurt, but a yurt can be a great house and a wonderful home!

Old growth all clear western Red Cedar always smells nice and looks beautiful.

 

A Most Unique Log Cabin/Home

We offer two different levels of Cedar Yurts:

  1. Micro-Log Cedar Yurt
    No permits are required but a nice warm, well-insulated cedar yurt. This yurt features our new micro-insulated log, insulated floor and a standing seam metal roof. This yurt starts at $175,000 as a kit.
  2. Well-Insulated Cedar Yurt
    Comes with a set of blueprints signed off by an engineer, ready to apply for a building permit. We have engineered an insulated log that meets the National Building code for R-value and have received building permits in 2 Provinces in Canada. This yurt starts at $450,000.

The old saying is true, "You get what you pay for!"

When most people see or hear the word YURT, they think of a cheap building. While that is true for the most part, you can’t get building permits for the soft-walled yurts as they have very little insulation. To keep the price down the windows are NOT real glass – just a clear piece of vinyl velcro taped to the canvas and you have to look out through the lattice walls. NOT OURS!

After nearly 50 years of building residential and commercial, we refuse to offer something that will not stand up to our winters.

 

Micro-Log Yurts

Cedar yurt w chairs

A fairly well-insulated yurt (walls are R-12), insulated floor (R-20), and a standing seam metal roof. Nice and warm but still not able to get a building permit as it does NOT meet all aspects of the building code. If you do NOT require permits, this is the yurt for you.

Insulated Cedar Yurts

Insulated logs

A well-insulated yurt that is stamped and signed by a licensed engineer, passes all RSI value regulations necessary for permits, and meets all regulations under the National Building code: R-40 floors, R-30 walls, and R-40 to R-60 roofs.
