Solid Walls, Windows, and a Vinyl Roof!
With this option, you get solid cedar walls, real glass windows that open, and a vinyl roof to keep the price down to compete with the soft-walled yurt.
You receive 2 windows that open with real glass and bug screens, one person door at 36″ wide with half glass, 8′ high solid cedar walls, a center ring with bubble and rafters to hold up your vinyl roof. Platform/floor is not included in the pricing.
So where does this leave you at this point?
You have a vandal-proof (and yes, vandals have been slicing through the thin canvas of a soft-walled yurt and stealing items through the large holes in the lattice walls). You have
real glass windows that open but you still have to make your floor and you still have a vinyl roof – what can we do to help you out here? A LOT!
The platform or yurt floor is usually done by a local carpenter to save on shipping or we offer an insulated floor upgrade starting at $12,000. This is what is called a Structural Insulated Panel or SIP. You still have to install it but the work is done for you. Each piece slides together over an insulated spline.
A standing seam metal roof to replace the vinyl roof is between $20,000. We can even offer you one or more skylights, taller windows, higher walls, and more.
Want additional windows? No problem, add as many as you wish. Each new window section is 48” wide and features a curved header and metal flashing for $1,800.
No worries about wind or rain now and if you have a nice view you can enjoy it by not having to look through a lattice wall, which is what you get in a soft-sided yurt. Window choices of sliders, double hung, half awning or full awning and more.
Better Wall Insulation
You purchased a yurt to keep the costs down. However, we also want all the comforts without icicles forming inside our yurt.
Want to add insulation (that works) to your yurt walls? The floor, roof and walls are where you want to invest a bit more money upfront. Your investment here will equal the amount of comfort and enjoyment you will have for years to come.
Our typical solid cedar yurt wall is a FULL 1 ½” of solid cedar, the same joint used in our cedar hot tubs so you know it is water tight. It is still only 1 ½” thick with no insulation, stronger than a lattice wall but still colder than you may wish.
Almost everyone that purchases a yurt wants to add insulation, even to our solid cedar yurts. One client screwed rigid insulation to the outside and added metal roofing all around the yurt. Looks beautiful and certainly nice and warm but a lot of extra work. This gave our engineering department an idea….
What if... we made our cedar walls with wood on the inside and on the outside and glued the wood to warm foam insulation? What if your log walls looked like this?
Solid wood on both sides with 2” of GPS (Graphite-infused Polystyrene Foam) between, giving you an R-12 yurt wall.
As you can see, you have a lot of options to get the 3-Season Cedar Yurt that best fits your needs, lifestyle and budget. Let's have a chat about options and pricing.
