Technically Advanced Yurts

Engineering Standards

We build with snow, cold, and wind in mind every step of the way. We work with a nationally-licensed engineering firm that can assist in getting your yurt built to withstand any conditions. This firm can provide stamped structural engineering plans for an additional fee. We use our customer’s historic ground snow load and wind categories to determine what (if any) structural upgrades will be required for your yurt to withstand the elements specific to its location.

We will conduct as thorough of a review as possible (using available data, building code requirements and/or customer insight) of the local site conditions to insure we are adding any needed structural upgrades or options. These upgrades may include:

Snow and Wind Kit

Increased roof rafter size

Perimeter blocking 

Central Cable Tie Down
