Yurt semi-permanent hut
The Pacific Yurt is a modern adaptation of the ancient shelter used by Central Asian nomads for centuries. The compact shape of the yurt and combination of lightweight members in tension and compression mean that the structure is highly efficient in maximizing strength while minimizing the use of materials.
The Pacific Yurt is a lightweight, low-cost, state-of-the-art version that retains the sense of wholeness of the ancient form while delivering the structural integrity, longevity and low maintenance demanded by modern users.
Though generally classified as a tent, the yurt is much stronger and weathertight. The Pacific Yurt is a circular structure that consists of a durable fabric cover, tension band and a wood frame that includes a lattice wall, radial rafters, central compression ring and a framed door.
Typically set upon wood platforms supported by simple post-and-beam systems, Pacific Yurts have minimal impact on the surrounding soils and, though durable, can be removed without a trace. Their flexibility allows them to be used in a wide variety of applications, from simple cabins to fully furnished retreats, complete with plumbing and electricity.
A quality product, a quality experience
So how is it that a company is able to grow from its humble beginnings in an old Oregon dairy barn to the leader of its industry?
In our case, first we had to create the industry. That happened in 1978, when we pioneered the modern adaptation of the yurt, which centuries ago was the traditional dwelling of Mongolian nomads. From that point forward, as other yurt companies have come and gone, we've continued to grow and to stay atop our industry.
We attribute our success to a combination of factors, not the least of which, of course, is the quality of our product. But as much as our customers rave about their yurts, they also speak of the quality of their experience with our company. For all of us at Pacific Yurts, there could be no higher praise. From the beginning, our guiding philosophy has been to create the best yurt in the world, and to treat our customers the way we like to be treated as customers professionally, respectfully, fairly and honestly.
