Interior Ideas

Intentional Design

A yurt can feel and act like more than one room with creative use of space. Intentional design can carve out a floor plan that matches your personality. Create privacy, separation, coziness, loftiness and functionality all with the installation of a few simple walls or a loft.

Ways to Configure

Interior Walls

Walls can be built to define areas within your yurt. Interior walls should be freestanding structures, and not attached to the lattice yurt walls as this may affect the structural integrity of the yurt. Bathrooms and bedrooms are the areas for which walls are most often built.

Lofts

Our wall height of 7’2″ enables lofts in even our small yurts. In 16′ and 20′ yurts, there is enough headroom to create a storage loft. In 24′, 27′ and 30′ yurts, a loft can be used as a bedroom, storage or private reading nook. The space under the loft can easily be enclosed for a bathroom or an additional bedroom. Lofts should be built as a freestanding structure and not attached to the lattice walls or rafters.

Bathrooms and Kitchens

Many customers choose to partition off a section of their yurt for a bathroom. The kitchen can then be located on the opposite side of this stud wall, creating a shared water source. Venting is most often directed through the yurt wall and plumbing lines are generally brought up through the floor.

Occasionally, yurt owners will choose to put their bathroom in a second yurt, either attached or detached, or even in a separate wood frame structure.

Utilities

Electrical lines and plumbing can be run to any location under your yurt and brought up through the floor.

Heating and Cooling

Heating a yurt is most often accomplished with a wood or gas stove vented through the yurt wall. Radiant in-floor heating is becoming popular and is an efficient, even way to heat the yurt. Upgrading to an insulation package will vastly improve efficiency in your yurt.

There are a variety of ways to keep your yurt cool in warmer weather. In addition to careful window and door placement, adding a dome lifter to your yurt is also an important step to ensuring good ventilation. If electricity is available, you may want to install an evaporative swamp cooler, an air conditioner, or a ductless minisplit ac unit. Upgrading to an insulation package will help keep your yurt cool by reflecting the sunlight away from the yurt.
