My Yurt

Winter Yurt Musing...

Snow is falling, and falling… and falling… here in the mountains of north Idaho. It’s a great time to think, to write, to reflect on what has transpired this past year.

It’s been over a year since my first blog entry.  A year of traveling the country and sharing my slideshow, “YURTS: Big Life, small footprint,” with readers, builders and yurt enthusiasts from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine.

In these next blogs I’ll look back at some of the questions you asked me while I was out on the road, and some that have come through on my yurt website and forum.

I’d also like to share some of the new yurt resources I’ve found while updating the website. Like, for example, this YouTube yurt video of a multiplex yurt in the UK all decked out Krygyz-style for a party! And these fun scenes from Simply Yurts, an event rental company in Devon, UK.

Thank you for joining me on my yurt blog, and please do continue to leave your comments and questions. I’ll do my best to answer what I can and find other experts to contribute as well…

    Hi Becky,
    We’ve spent some wonderful times out in our yurt this winter. We’ve had to snowshoe in lately – 2 or 3 hundred yards – because the snow in our road was too deep even for my 4WD pickup – WITH chains!
    I hope you’re enjoying the winter and keeping your head above the snow!

    Hi Mike,
    Glad you’ve been out at the yurt and that it’s working well for you. Yes, this snow is certainly intense!!!
    Have you tried using a hot water bottle in bed to keep warm through the night–even when that wood stove goes out? I love those things.
    We’re going to bring Bill Coperthwaite out to do a tapered-wall yurt workshop here in north Idaho in June. Would you like me to send you the info?
    Hello to Candace. Love,

    I am trying to connect with Candace and Mike Finity and having lived closed to Heart Song Retreat I have spent many wonderful hours in Yurts and the magic of space and roundness and healing were deeply felt and so happy to see this Yurt forum and hear others speaking into the knowing of how the round space open hearts.
