Custom Yurt Kits For Sale

Build the yurt of your dreams

All yurts are not created equal – at Shelter Designs, we are making the highest quality yurts on the market today. Remember – other company’s endpoint is our starting point.

Generous standard features are included in the base cost of every yurt kit, many of which will cost extra with other companies (if they offer them at all). These include larger standard rafters (why have a 2×4 rafter on a 30’ yurt?), a ⅜” tension cable, built in awnings and rain diverters over every glass window and doorway, and insulated fiberglass exterior doors with thermal pane glass windows (not plywood and plexiglass). Using all of our custom options and engineering data, our team will help you design the perfect yurt specific for your use and location.

At Shelter Designs we offer two distinct yurt models. The Big Sky model uses premium dimensional lumber for the rafters (2×4, 2×6, 2×8, 2×10) and snow and wind legs, while the Eco Yurt utilizes small diameter round lodgepole pine logs for the rafters and snow and wind legs. Both models come packed with the same generous standard features mentioned above and are completely customizable to suit your use and needs. The Big Sky model typically runs about 10-15% less than Eco Yurt (depending on custom options chosen) and is the perfect choice for customers wanting an outstanding yurt at a great price. The Eco Yurt is a one of a kind, hand crafted yurt that has a more rustic log cabin feel to it. We utilize locally sourced small diameter poles that are selectively thinned for forest health. Big Sky models are able to achieve higher snow load ratings as we can increase the rafter size as needed, all the way to engineered lumber, while the Eco Yurt maxes out at a 4” diameter pole.
