The tent story
More and more customers are interested in living in a yurt. The budget of this customer was limited but his will great, and so he implemented his dream of a yurt with a small loan from the sister. So that the yurt remained as cheap as possible, he chose as outer material extra strong tent fabric 420, However, certain extras were important to him, such as. a dome had to be easy! The 3-fach glazed windows, however, he had custom-made to measure and were not even so expensive. He also took over the soil and the insulation himself. He ordered Join in Switzerland FiWo a 6 -10cm thick wool fleece, He has the floor with pressed wood panels from Stroba isolated.
The yurt is small but with the two windows and the dome nice and bright, the climate pleasant. The customer tells me the humidity is about 35%. He would have dried the laundry in the yurt in the winter, no problem. The yurt breathes and thanks to the thick, slightly too thick insulation it perfectly stores the heat from an air heat exchanger. Electricity he has pulled from the house and provided with a fuse box, because the plug was too hot. Over the long distance the fuse box in the house does not work anymore and therefore this would be very convenient.
Everything he has reduced to the minimum, lives with what he needs. It has to be easy to transport and after the last move he has had to reduce a lot. Outside, a box and a rack serve as additional storage space. It's all improvised but carefully thought out. There are many considerations and creativity behind it. We are very pleased to see how our product has been individually developed to meet its own needs.
He has even stretched a hammock from door frame to door frame. Not something we would recommend to our customers, but the yurt patiently put it through. His wish would be to leave his yurt somewhere permanently, but that is with the permit so a thing. So he moves from place to place, always within the allowed time limit, becoming a modern nomad. Switzerland, with its cantonal laws, does not make it easy for such freethinkers and it would be nice if that would one day change so that more people can live their dream of living in a yurt.
