Way back…almost a year ago…on December 5 of 2012 I told you folks about a little yurt project I was starting that involved building a new, second yurt on my property in the north Georgia mountains. It was to be a smaller, connected yurt that would serve as a bedroom.
Note: A 30 ft yurt is plenty big enough for an individual or couple, and could work for a couple with a small child (read infant), but for a newly married couple (going well, thank you) with a teenage daughter space, and privacy, are rather tight…too tight.
Anyway…I tolld you about the planned project and then…nothing. Here we are, 10 months later, and I’m finally bringing you up to date. Why so long, you ask?
Unfortunately, because there has been nothing to tell…until now. For various reasons the project stalled several months ago. Materials for the platform were bought and delivered, the yurt kit was ordered and delivered by Pacific Yurts, and the project stopped right there, with materials and the kit sitting in my driveway. For a few reasons I won’t go into here (Except the weather. Have you ever seen such a wet summer here in the southeast?) the project has been at a standstill.
No longer. The weather has cleared, the other obstacles to the project have been cleared, and construction on the bedroom yurt platform is finally underway!
I’ll be posting regular updates on the progress, with plenty of “how-to” information. This project is a bit different than a standalone yurt that most yurt companies’ instruction manuals talk about in that it is an addition to an existing yurt rather than a single yurt.
Also, this project, along with the setup of my original yurt, will form the basis of the long promised yurt and alternate housing tutorial that will finally be published by the end of the year. If you are interested in possibly getting the tutorial be sure to sign up for our email list. Folks on that list will get the chance to get the tutorial early and at a pretty hefty discount.
Thanks for stopping by…and, as always…Y’all come back now, ya hear?
