US Yurt Companies

US Sales – Standard Yurts

Although yurts are becoming more popular, there are only about 15 manufacturers across the US that have products available at all times. The companies listed below offer very similar products – a vinyl-sided and roofed yurt that can be erected quickly without a standard home’s labor and expense. Small to medium-size yurts can be built in a day with just two people. Larger sizes to 30-feet in diameter can be done in the same time-frame with a third and fourth person helping. Remember that the footing preparation, especially if building on concrete and wood piers, can take several weeks.

Solid-sided yurts can be built on a quick-to-build platform on level ground. Videos online show that a crew of three to four people can create one from the ground up in a single day. Freedom Yurt’s 24-foot model (470 square feet) runs close to $32,000, while a Pacific Yurt (and most other companies) runs about $10,000.

However, the Freedom Yurt comes with a base that sits on level ground and cement blocks. Most yurts are designed to be placed on a platform, which is not included in the purchase price, and will cost as much as the yurt itself.

A solid-sided yurt comes with regular windows, while a fabric/vinyl yurt comes with fabric screens and clear vinyl windows only. Upgrading to real windows can add $7200 to a four-window standard yurt.
