If, like me, you’ve also thought about other alternative structures you’re probably also interested in yurts. They don’t work very well in my hometown (Florida) but I’d definitely consider them for other parts of the world. Wooden yurt cabins are also really cool.

  1. I always wonder about the ventilation in these yurt huts, there are no windows and only 1 or 2 doors, I’m a guy that loves moving fresh air but also love the look and feel of a yurt. how could it be better ventilated?

    1. Mongolian yurts (aka “ger”) feature an open roof hub for ventilation. These days they also come with acrylic glass-inserts to seal the structure from bad weather. Other advantages of ger over American-style yurts include sustainable, breathable felt insulation and, since the stove is located in the middle of the structure, more efficient heating.

      There are many companies that ship ger from Mongolia but you can also find detailed construction plans online.
