We’ve bought a yurt*


* When I say “bought a yurt”, I actually mean, we put a down payment on the yurt. But, regardless, the yurt is coming!

By the end of May/beginning of June (hopefully all the snow will be gone…) we will be assembling our new round home here on the farm. We have bought a traditional Mongolian yurt from Groovy Yurts which works directly with families in Mongolia who build the yurt.

We are planning a fun yurt-raising event for this time and you are all invited!

The most common question we get is: will you be living in the yurt year-round? Yes. Yes we will. And until then we have many, many things to figure out. We welcome any helpful advice or thoughts you might have.

      We got the 7-wall yurt. It works out to about 25′ in diameter & 533 sq. ft. of living space. You can join us if you want. Then you wouldn’t have to be jealous anymore.
