TOP TEN REASONS TO OWN A YURT:
Compared to the cost of a traditional home in many areas, there is no doubt that you will be saving money by living in a yurt in most parts of the country.
Since it can be torn down and moved to another location, you can take it with you if you have to relocate. That means you will never have to buy another home. All you need is a piece of land large enough to erect your yurt.
With proper insulation and a good wood stove you will be comfortable in even the coldest weather and by opening the windows and dome, you can get enough ventilation to keep the yurt from getting too overheated in the summer.
Even when faced with the toughest elements, the yurt is durable. Some of the fir frames used to build our yurts last 50-70 years and the canvas for 15 years, longer than the average shingled roof.
6. ONE WITH NATURE.
In a White Mountain Yurt, you can enjoy the sounds of the rain and the wind but stay safe and dry. You can hear nearby animals and see the stars at night, but you’re afforded adequate protection and comfort.
5. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.
The materials of a traditional yurt are all recyclable and because no permanent foundation is used, there’s no lasting impact to the ground when a yurt is moved.
The structure is also safe. You can get doors that lock and even if someone pulls up the canvas sheeting, it would be hard to get through the latticed wood. That also keeps the wild animals out, should you be sharing space with them. Yurts are also fairly inconspicuous in that there size and shape allows you to place the structure within tall shrubs and/or trees for privacy.
3. TAX ADVANTAGE.
Another way that you may save might come down to taxes. Because the yurt is not a permanent structure, it may not be taxed when placed on a property as a house would.
2. FUN FACTOR.
You can’t deny that there’s a fun factor to a White Mountain Yurt. One downside to staying in one may be that everyone comes over to talk about it!
From personal to business a White Mountain Yurt has many uses. A Vacation Home. Temporary Housing. Guest Lodging. Studio/Office. Spa Enclosure. Meditation/Fitness Room. Campground Rental. Ski Resort Cabana. Summer Camp Housing. Health Center. Classroom Space and much more
