What Is a Yurt?

You’ve probably seen fascinating getaways popping up on social media and rental websites for a while now. It leaves you may leave you wondering, what is a yurt? Simply put, a yurt is a modern version of an ancient tent-style shelter used across Central Asia. These structures were easy to assemble and disassemble when the tribe needed to move to a new location. The modern yurts we use today are close to the original but feature some deviations.  

These shelters are made to withstand harsh weather conditions. Freedom Yurt-Cabins uses natural materials to ensure the construction process leaves a small carbon footprint. The structure’s round shape allows for the most internal room with the least amount of building materials necessary. Therefore, yurts are an economically friendly way to live. They’re available in various sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your needs.  

There are many reasons people install yurts. Some use them as housing for elderly parents who still want independence but need to be close to loved ones. It’s also great for adult children who need to move back home. Yurts provide ample space and freedom for everyone while allowing you to stay close to home.  

Plus, glamping has become increasingly popular for vacation-goers. What’s not to like about camping in the lap of luxury? You can experience the great outdoors with all the amenities of a solid shelter. People are purchasing plots of land and installing a handful of yurts on the property to create glamping sites. Vacationers want to be close to nature without feeling uncomfortable. Yurts provide safety and security from the natural elements.
