What does your dream home look like? Is it a mansion in the suburbs? Or an apartment in a skyscraper? Or maybe it's a castle or a modest cottage in the countryside? There are lots of options! But what would you say if you were offered to live in a yurt? You'd probably be skeptical, but that's only until you see the modern, stylish yurt that Zach and Nicole built in 20 minutes' drive from Portland, Oregon. Once you see it, you'll definitely want to do the same.
The couple has built a modern yurt in a year
They've created a Do It Yurtself website that describes the entire process
The name derives from a word play "Do it yourself" and "Yurt."
So how exactly have they done it?
This is what it was supposed to look like on the inside
To begin with, what the yurt consists of:
It's the platform on which the yurt stands, the grid, the rafters, the compression ring and the covering.

Despite the name of the website, Zach recommends buying these materials at a store
He believes that it is impossible to make the frame for a modern yurt by yourself. We are not nomads, and we want a dwelling for many years, right?
The most difficult stage is to install the platform
It took 12 days to build the platform
The platform cost $10,000
Of course, he couldn't do it without his friends' help
Next, the installation of the structure
It was a 4-level difficulty. It took a day to complete
Next, the insulation and covering of the yurt
Also one day of work
Zach thinks this stage is pretty easy
2 out of 5
Now the living room and the loft
It was supposed to look like this
It took 10 days to complete
14 days for the interior work
3 days for planting some greenery
There are a lot of plants in the yurt
And finally the couple could breathe a sigh of relief!
Let's see what has turned out!
The entrance area
The stairs to the loft
And just a magical bedroom
Some details of everyday life
The yurt cost the family $65,000
The yurt cost $31,000, $10,000 for the platform, and $24,000 for furniture, decorations, and more.
So, would you like to live there?
