Yurts appear logical for my tropical climate where elements of nature aren’t so severe. Well, surprise, but no worry. Just know that maintaining yurt warmth can be an easier task than keeping cool.
So if hot weather is the case, consider awnings and reflective insulation. Companies that sell yurts which can be permitted typically offer such upgrades. Other yurt suppliers tend to provide for the climate where they manufacture and focus on those needs only.
The other hot weather issue is ventilation. Not only for mold, but to get a breeze. Most yurts are manufactured with three windows and a standard single door. I suggest investigating extra windows and awnings for ultimate fresh-air comfort. Personally, I feel the window dressings create a look of charm that is yurt-unique with a functional dome. Oh yeah, don’t forget the yurt dome opens! How about tinting the dome?
Writing from some yurt living experience, the ceiling fan mount I purchased through Yurts of Hawaii is impressive quality and fits perfectly under the yurt dome. Download a price list that proves reasonable for all add-ons referred above. It’s a great guide, regardless of where you order.
For those who want to study custom options, I’m glad to report there’s a wealth of information on our Internet. Yet please keep in mind that communicating with experts from where you buy is typically with no consultation fee, ‒ the smart way to proceed with factory-direct pricing.
