Getting started

I work full-time as a computer programmer, but since I stayed in a forest service yurt for a winter camp out  several years ago, I've been interested in yurts. (My family might say obsessed.)
Initially, I built a "hexayurt" out of 7/16 OSB sheathing. I ended up taking it apart and rebuilding it at least three times. It's finally evolved into a very functional milking shed.

I also put together a "stretch hexayurt" from 1" foam panels and most recently, a more portable yurt with a wooden frame and a flexible insulation covering.

I've decided to start a side-business to build and sell yurts locally as well as put together kits and plans for sale via the Internet. I'm working on several prototypes now. More details to follow...
