The yurt is a unique and memorable addition to any piece of land!
If you plan to locate your yurt in a rural area it may not need to be permitted, but building code requirements can vary greatly so it’s best to check with your local authorities prior to your yurt purchase.
Yurts are classified by permitting authorities in several different ways, including as a permanent structure or temporary structure. They may also be viewed as an outbuilding much like a garage or storage building. The best way to start is by taking our brochure, suggested deck plans, and information about snow loads and wind capacities to your local planning and zoning office. If they need more information, we can provide you with engineering data compiled by an independent, based engineering firm. In some cases, the permitting office will require that the engineering data be wet stamped (certified) by an engineer from your state.
We can provide this for most states. Don’t hesitate to call us at 1.970-240-2111 for more information about our engineering.
