Yurt

Our first yurt was purchased from a company called Ulantajji in Mongolia. They have distributors in the UK, see Yurts Direct link below.

We have lived in our yurt for three years now, and it provides us with a warm toasty home in the rainy winter months. It is almost like living outdoors. We can hear all the noises of animals, wind and trees.

We put the yurt up in December of 2007. We gathered together a small group of friends to help us the first time we put the yurt up. With knowledge, a yurt is relatively simple to erect, and can be done with two people.

Our yurt is on an insulated wooden base, which is supported by concrete blocks. The yurt pictured is a number 5 yurt, meaning it has 5 khanas. The khanas are the lattice pieces which are opened out to stand up, and then roped together. The khanas stand at 1.5m high. The khanas are then strapped together to hold them in place.

Once the khanas are up, the door is placed, followed by the bhaganas - the central supports for the crown -the central ring at the top. Once the bhaganas are in place, the crown is placed on top. The poles are then fitted into place all the way around the crown ring. Our number 5 yurt has 70 poles.

Once the yurt 'skeleton' is up, the coverings are placed on it.

A cotton inner lining is the first layer to go on.

Followed by a layer of felt for insulation.

Then a canvas covering.

And finally the outer cover.
