Yurt Making Plans

Around The Yurt - detailed information about yurts

There are many fine plans available. Paul King of Woodland Yurts has written two free books (see here) and also The Complete Yurt Handbook.  Froit has written the Real Mongol Ger which contains detailed plans for building a traditional Mongol Ger.
Here are some other web sites that have plans and help with yurt construction.

Rene has produced a great resource for building simple but diffeent structures and it includes his very useful online calculator.
