Building a Wood-Framed Panelized Yurt, Pt. II: the Walls

It took about an hour for the 12 pre-made yurt walls to be installed by two gents who don’t work all that fast. The walls weigh roughly 80 pounds each.


Earlier, the floor panels were covered in rain/snow shield since it will be a while before a roof goes on and meanwhile, winter is looming. Note that wall panels are designated for particular locations.


The panels are set up to easily screw to the foundation beams; temporary screws were used to attach them to each other.

We are writing a book about the entire process from start to finish so we can share how to build this yurt with anyone who is interested! Stay tuned as we progress, and be sure to watch for news on the book.
