See the 8' to the left

(Note that this 8' would be made out of white not clear).

The 14, 18, or 20' Yurts each have four doors and 4 windows. The 8 Yurt and 11 Yurt have one door and do not have any windows.



You get a lot more volume for your money as you go up in diameter. When you step inside the 18' yurt after being in the 14' yurt, the 18' feels twice as big. The 20' yurt feels twice the size of the 18' yurt. This is because the extra feet in diameter extends out in all directions (including up) creating a large increase in volume. Since the surface area of the covering does not increase as rapidly as the volume, the larger domes are less expensive for the space you get. Our drawings effectively illustrate the different sizes we offer.
