The Eco-Yurt is a one of a kind, truly hand crafted yurt. No one else is making anything like it, you will find this only at Shelter Designs. Local, sustainably-harvested lumber is incorporated into every Eco-Yurt frame. By keeping the lumber production as close to home as we can, we ensure that the ecological footprint of our frames stays within our watershed. This also bolsters the local economy and keeps us connected to the forest we call home. After carefully selecting only the finest quality wood available, we hand craft each individual yurt frame as it is ordered. Production times are a little longer on an Eco-Yurt, but you can’t rush craftsmanship! Beautiful, hand finished lodgepole pine roof rafters and snow and wind legs and a non toxic, no VOC finish are just a few of the features setting this yurt in a class of it’s own.
