Folks who follow this blog even casually know how I feel about Pacific Yurts’ quality. I did research…a LOT of research…on yurt companies before purchasing my 30 foot Pacific Yurt in the spring of 2009. I felt my choice was a good one BFORE laying out any money for what I intended to be the last place I would ever live.
Well, its happened again. I’ll be writing a post soon about the continued assaults my trees seem intent on making on my humble abode, but briefly, there has been yet another tree strike (I’m thinking of taking my chainsaw out and making a meadow out of my wooded acres).
You’ll get the details later, but since many folks are deciding NOW which yurt company to do business with this year, I thought I’d share the following email I sent to Pacific Yurts last week. It’s a direct cut-and-paste, without even formatting correction. It will tell you…yet again…just how strong a Pacific Yurt is.

Another…yes, ANOTHER…tree strike, last Wednesday. The whole damn
place shook a LOT, and the sound was horrendous. It was about 10pm and
pouring rain along with about 45 degrees and the wind howling, so, since
there was no water coming in and nothing in the way of apparent damage
visible on immediate, cursory inspection from the inside, I decided to
wait until daytime to see how bad it was so I’d have light.
Next morning I went out to see how bad it was so I could guess how much
repair was going to cost.
You didn’t get a phone call, did you? Absolutely ZERO damage…just
some clean-up and getting the tree off the yurt.
