Going Yurt Full Time
Many people have decided to set up home in a Yurt. There are many reasons for doing so, so here we explore some of the motivating factors to pitch up a tent on a more permanent basis. Ironically of course Yurts were designed for nomadic lifestyles rather than for setting down roots. But since many people live in mobile homes or camping vans, a Yurt is for sure a more stationary, permanent move.
Getting back to nature
The beauty of living in a yurt is being able to set up home practically anywhere. You will need to check permissions and land registry to ensure it is allowed to have a dwelling on the land, but if you can buy a plot in the countryside you can choose the location yourself. You can be away from all major towns and cities in the peace and quiet of the natural landscape. Build a skylight in the top of your yurt to experience beautiful starlight skies, free from light pollution of the cities. You’ll also enjoy sunlight mornings. Several bloggers who have decided to take the plunge and build a yurt to live in permanently have shared their experiences online. Many have started with a basic frame work built by a company and then used their own DIY skills to add features like an attic or storage. Even with some Ikea furniture a yurt can have a very modern, expensive feel!
