3-D ‘builder’ helps campers construct customized yurts

The company’s website is a wealth of information for people who are considering getting a yurt. Among other resources and links, there is an interactive 3-D yurt builder that guides a potential yurt buyer through building a model allowing them to select size, colors, accessories, options, and even allows them to place their virtual yurt in various settings to see how it will look once it lands on their property. The program gives approximate pricing as they go so that many questions are answered before the customer even talks to the salesperson.

The basic yurt, as offered by the company, is like a blank slate. You start with the essential elements and adapt from there. The first question is size which ranges from 12 to 30 feet in diameter. All yurts come with the basic structural elements, covers, clear top dome, wooden door, and two fabric windows. This bare-bones yurt is perfect for some users, others will choose from an array of options allowing them to customize and upgrade their yurt depending on their location and how they plan to use it. They can add additional windows, doors and adjust their placement. Other possibilities include insulated glass windows, insulation, and all sorts of other choices including a premium top cover with 15 year warranty, that ensures that the new owner will get the yurt that will match just what they want it to do and look like.

Another selling point is the ease of installation. With the smaller models, following the detailed installation guide, the yurt can be set up by two people in a few hours once the platform has been built. The larger yurts can take a day or two, and a few extra hands, but are still very doable, even for someone with no construction experience.
