I want one!
A couple of summers ago, we visited a large rural flea market not far from Ottawa. An enterprising young man and his wife had erected a large, eco-friendly yurt on the premises. They were using it as both a sales model and as a store for displaying the other eco-friendly products they had for sale.
It was a chilly spring day, but when we stepped into the 30 foot diameter yurt it was warm and peaceful. The centre of the roof was at least 12 feet above our heads, and had a transparent cap made out of the material they use for the windows of space vehicles. The octagonal shape of the base lent itself to area zoning and the spaciousness of the whole dwelling was very appealing.
I found myself fantasizing about sitting in yurt beside a lake. I would be sitting in a comfy chair and writing stories to my heart’s content in this peaceful, expansive space.
Of course, I’ll have to win a lottery first because expansive is also expensive. Oh well, one can dream!
