Its been long promised, but its FINALLY (almost) here…my complete, everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink, guide to deciding-on-preparing-to-build-building-finishing-the-interior-and-ENJOYING book about yurts.

I give you other alternative housing ideas, just so you consider ALL your options when looking for “something different” in the style of your anticipated home.  We discuss all the legal issues surrounding yurts, from zoning to financing to insurance and more.  We cover site planning, foundation, and construction, with a special section on hydronic radiant floors, the ideal heating system for a yurt.

We give you tips that yurt companies would like to give you but can’t because their lawyers won’t let them.  Liability, you know.

So, if you have any interest in yurts, please do two things:

  1. Look over to the right, at the top of the sidebar…see that graphic about the JuicyMaters eNewsletter?  After taking the poll, below, click on that graphic.  That will take you to a page where you can sign up for our newsletter to get information on all things JuicyMaters, including notice of the book’s publication.
  2. Take the poll below.  I have until the end of January to decide what form I am going use to publish “The Yurt: From Dreaming ABOUT It to Dreaming IN It”.

  1. looks like you folks have some ideas that might be helpful. In the process of digging holes for footings in rocky new Hampshire soil, 9 done , and 10 to go.. Still not sure if I am using fiberglass batts or expensive fooled back panels? Still have not asked about permits, as I have always adhered to the ” Better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission” Also it seems these kits are quite dear,, I think i can build a cabin for 1/2 the price of , as the are asking for 13k for a 24′ with minimal options? But we will probably still go with the yurt, and build a cabin next year, I have a portable wood mill so all I need are nails and insulation.. thanks for now.

  2. Hi Bob, I’m going to read every word of all of your posts because, viola, an epiphany has occurred to me about my future in a yurt of my very own, along with many other freedoms this choice will allow me. Your posts are technical enough to fill in the details of the yurt-seller’s starry-eyed visions of loveliness. So thanks for that a bunch! because you took time to provide all of this free on the net, so my trials will be smart and build upon your experiences. Wise Man, and Generous!!! So, leave it all up, and I will read all incoming posts as well and wish me LUCK!!!

  3. Hi Karen…welcome to the JuicyMaters family and welcome to yurting. I hope you enjoy both and I hope the blog gives you some ideas. Also, thanks for the kind words! Keep coming back!
