If you’re interested in yurts, the environmental impact of your building project is a primary concern. With this always in mind, we design for efficiency and purchase our materials from local sources. You can feel confident working with us.
There is a lot to consider whilst moving forward with any yurt project. From local permits to prevailing wind patterns and topography, finding your best placement, and conceptualising to provide for all manner of provisions. Planning ahead during every aspect will ensure a smooth yurting experience.
Surely Yurts can share our experience to help you along your yurt path.
Surely Yurts can help design and implement a photo-voltaic system that will meet your lighting needs and exceed your expectations.
Some people tend to think that the Northeast is a bad location for investment in solar energy. That notion is incorrect, we get more sun than Germany, and that country produces a significant amount of energy with photo-voltaic panels.
We have been succesfully using 12 volt solar lighting in our own homes and workshops since the technology became available.
Surely Yurts installs solar panels, charge controllers, lights, switches, and batteries for bright and long lasting off-grid lighting.
Surely Yurts makes attractive rainwater catchment barrels that are just as ‘at home’ on Main street as they are in remote off-grid settings. Our 55 gallon plastic rainwater catchment barrels come from a local food manufacturer. The food safe barrels are trimmed with wooden slats (rejects from yurt wall high grading) and belted with steel banding. The exterior of the barrel is then rubbed with raw (non-toxic) linseed oil. Finally, the barrel is topped with a two layer screen for leaf clean out, sterilized with a mixture of bleach and water and is then ready for pickup or delivery. We sell these barrels for $125 each, discounted pricing is available for bulk orders.
We offer rainwater catchment systems for existing buildings i.e. gravity fed sinks, showers, and toilets. As well as custom installations for all yurts including curved gutters, 12 volt pumps, and rainwater storage.
