I'm thinking about moving into a yurt, and the idea doesn't even feel weird, even if it probably will to everyone I know. Staring at a skydome could be a nice change after a lifetime of staring at a screen.

The "what if I moved into a yurt" idea I've been pondering for a while might become more than an idea. Turns out my folks are pretty supportive regarding this hypothetical project.

Now, this would mean lots of planning, finding a suitable and affordable place, getting in touch with the builders, with the bankers (ugh), surviving the whole administrative mess, building the yurt, then moving in... if possible in that order.

It's a bit daunting, but it's way more exciting than daunting.


@ice I feel like there's a whole world of yurt financing implied here that I can scarcely comprehend

@phooky Well, since it would be a "fixed" yurt, it should be pretty much the same as for a regular house... but, uh, rounder, made of wood, and possibly partly built by myself, but knowing I have zero construction skills.

The cool thing is the guys who will likely build it offer a variety of options to lower prices by letting their clients contribute to the construction work, including participative woodworking and assembling. So it would also be an interesting learning experience.
