Domes / Skylights

…meteor showers, autumn’s kaleidoscope of fallen leaves, winter’s snow cocoon. The standard Colorado Yurt dome is a focal point of the yurt experience because it allows the space to be centered with natural light and connects you with its location.

Standard Domes

All Colorado Yurts come with our standard domed yurt skylights stretching five feet in diameter. To help achieve durability and security, the domes are designed to have a weather-tight fit and last in the elements for years to come.

Standard Dome Specs

  • All yurts come with a dome that measures five feet across and 16-inches tall.
  • The domed yurt skylight is ¼” thick pure acrylic. Pure acrylic outlasts other clear polymers when exposed to the elements for five years or more.
  • Includes a flange and down-turned edge.
  • The yurt dome fastens in six places to the compression ring with stainless steel expansion springs and four stainless steel cables for an outstanding weather-tight fit.
  • Our engineered compression ring is cut from two twelve-sided polygons of clear Douglas fir and is three inches thick and five feet in diameter.

Dome Upgrades

If you’re looking for additional ventilation and cooling, “sunglasses” for your yurt, a way to manage bugs and solar warming, insulation for extreme cold or a ceiling fan mount, we offer several dome upgrades that can help you build your perfect yurt.

Dome Lifter

The dome lifter allows you to easily raise the leeward side of your yurt dome from floor level using a handheld winding brace. This is the number one recommended option for cooling the yurt.

Tinted Bronze Dome

A tinted bronze dome significantly reduces heat gain and keeps your yurt about eight degrees cooler than a clear dome while still flooding the yurt with plenty of natural light.

Bug Net/Shade Cloth

The bug net attaches with Velcro to the bottom side of the compression ring, and serves as both a bug barrier when your yurt dome is open plus a shade cloth to reduce heat gain.


Insulation attaches with Velcro to the bottom side of the compression ring to seal off the dome in extremely cold temperatures.

Ceiling Fan Mount

A brace mounted to the compression ring allows you to install a ceiling fan under the dome; fan not provided.
