Charming insulated yurt cabins add round homes to the tiny house movement

The first thing you notice about the yurt is its sturdy construction. With 2″ fiberglass insulation in the walls and 2″ polyiso foam in the roof, the cabins stay warm despite the cold weather snap that just pushed through the west. The owners of the music studio bolster the insulated cabins with a tiny infrared heater, and if it gets too warm, a dome lifter capping the space can be elevated to let warm air escape. The second thing you notice are the door and windows, neither of which are endemic to traditional Mongolian yurts. While it may detract from the novelty, it makes the cabin feel like a real home, and the low-e double paned glass contributes to its energy efficiency while permitting natural light to penetrate the interior.
