  1. Hi there

    I think three to four feet is adequate enough. a little higher would be pushing it. besides I have noted that youths had enter into locked buildings regardless. Don’t ask me how, I really don’t know. The buildings I am referring to is schools administration buildings and the local convenience store.

    Considering that I am in northern canada, it would be just earthbags basically. a deck and a platform.

    harvested logs could work.

  2. If you’re planning to travel with it, keep in mind that a yurt takes at least 2 people to set up (3 is far easier). I have quite a few friends with yurts (I’m in the Society for Creative Anachronism), and a significant percentage of them have a smaller (lighter, quicker) tent for weekend camping, and just bring the yurts for the longer events (week+) due to the setup and breakdown time.

      • Haha, your blog instills in me the burning desire to own land! I don’t think that’s very feasible for me right now; I’m a college student with a meager budget and real estate is still out of my range. But, tent/caravan/RV living is within reach, and that’s what I’m focusing on first.
