The New Yurt’s Interior

In the last video I unboxed and put up my new yurt from the folks over at, and since then I’ve had some time to experiment with the layout of the interior.  I love circular shape of the structure because it allows for a lot of things to line the perimeter while still leaving plenty of living space in the center.  Also, I’m officially off-grid now because I no longer have access to electricity besides solar.

Watch as I give you a tour of the 12-foot diameter yurt, showing the sweet rug I found on Craistlist, how I use the back seats of my Toyota 4Runner as a makeshift couch, and much more!

The New Yurt Arrives

After spending many months renting and living in a Mongolian Ger, I decided that I wanted to commit to the minimalist off-grid lifestyle and purchase one of my own.

After a lot of research I decided to go with a 12-foot diameter yurt made by the folks over at because they’re lightweight and easy to put up and take down.  I hope you enjoy watching the unboxing and my first attempt at putting a yurt together!
