What's a yurt?
A yurt is the home of Mongolian nomads. It is a clever construction which is easy to erect, but stable enough to be sasfe even under extreme weather conditions. The yurt is a circular tentlike accommodation which consists of a wooden structure coated and isolated with wool felt and a waterproof cloth. It makes them comfortable warm in the winter and cool under a burning sun in the summer. As an adjustment to the more wet Scandinavian climate, these yurts are not coated with wool felt during summer.
Yurts radiates calmness and genuineness, which we as modern living people miss out on in contemporary society. It gives the yurts a unique and safe ambience, the same as they have had during several hundred years.
