If needed, Internet and phone working? - Final inspection scheduled with county building inspector? - Certificate of Occupancy received? Congrats!!! You’ve survived!! Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy all of your hard work. We haven’t regretted our decision a single day since we moved into our yurt. Even on the second night when our area was hit with a massive windstorm with 50+ winds and heavy rain. It lasted all night, and while we didn’t sleep much because of the noise, I really did feel safe in our yurt.

Lofted or no? On top of a stick built structure? Have fun with this part, it’s why you’re going through all of this work! STEP TWO: ACTION Land: Do you have your land lease signed or have you closed on your new land? No? Get back up there to step one. Pronto! Yes? Congrats! Now comes the fun part. Choose your yurt site. While many people choose to put yurts on steep hillsides (part of the attraction really, they can go virtually anywhere), we choose a flat spot of land on the property. It was a tad boring, or so we thought.

It did, but unfortunately, it was an internet only item and would take up to 10 days to get to us. Did I mention we had to have the place inspected AND move in within the week? PANIC!!! Luckily, Mike called our local Home Depot (not national customer service) and the customer rep told him they had a kit in stock with the drain option we needed. He picked up the old kit, drove it to Home Depot and traded it out. And yes, that makes the whole experience sound MUCH easier than it was. It was almost stroke inducing at that point in the process.
