10 Reasons Everyone Should Live in a Yurt
What is a Yurt?
Before we look at all these yurts, let’s define what exactly we’re talking about.
According to Webster, a yurt is “a circular domed tent of skins or felt stretched over a collapsible lattice framework and used by pastoral peoples of inner Asia”. To you and me: a round building with a domed roof. The walls are made of felt, hides or, more commonly, canvas. The interior structure can be wood, aluminum or even steel.
Above all, yurts are really cool. They are easy to heat. They handle all sorts of weather with ease. They are cheap. They can be moved and yet make comfortable permanent homes. They are the ideal shelter for a survivalist who wants to be prepared for anything.
