Yurt living part 3 – Small yurt setup. Quick update

Hello my dear readers. It’s time for a quick update. Small Yurt addition.

As I mentioned earlier, I purchased a small ger in addition to my traditional Kazakh yurt. The main purpose is to store my tools, supplies and also put my composting toilet. I will write about it in my future post.

Today I am just sharing some pictures from the set up day. This wouldn’t be possible without Kazakh Diaspora in Montreal. Thanks to everyone who participated.

  1. I used the same method to build a straw bale yurt platform as my Kazakh yurt

2. It is only 3.5m in diameter and unlike the Kazakh yurt, has straight roof rafters.
