About Shirley Yurts
Grandma Shirley means business. Vim, Vigor, and eye for detail yields a quality built-to-last product, custom-tailored to fit your design ideals and specific location. Each of our yurts is meticulously and lovingly hand-made.
I was inspired as a boy growing up by my grandmother – Shirley Reed of Sherrill, NY. We spent a lot of time together and one story that sticks out in my memory was about how she had wished to be an architect. As valedictorian of her high-school class that was certainly a possibility. I’m sure she didn’t regret one second of the time with her 7 children but, raising them all up didn’t allow time for all that University time. I named the yurt company in honor of her and her strong spirit that still lives with me today.
Today I am inspired by the versatility and uniqueness of the yurts that I create. I have built yurts for a wide variety of uses and with each yurt that I craft, I combine the dreams of my clients with my knowledge to create a one-of-a-kind yurt.
I have built yurts all over the northeast United States, the West Coast, as well as a few ventures into Canada.
