Round Wood Homes delivered to Baja


Oregon Yurtworks offers its complete shell home kit package to client’s for use in Baja Sur. Clients are able to shop for a home with Oregon Yurtworks on our website. Shipping is done via flatbed truck . The package walls are finished to the outside and windows are preinstalled; the exterior siding is pre-finished and installed. Ceilings are finished inside with natural cedar and on the outside with roofing materials also installed. All that is left for the owner to do is assemble the components together. Once the kit is installed the owner can finish the interior to the client’s specific taste.
Assembly of the shell kit can be accomplished in 5-6 days with a skilled crew. These are not the canvas type yurts. Our yurts are engineered to winds to 100 mph and with upgrades to 145 mph.

Maybe he doesn't know there is a Baja Norte --- thinks Sacramento is its capital. Anyway, we stayed in a yurt (manufactured by Oregon Yurtworks) in San Ignacio. It was pretty terrific.

They are cool, they have a skylight in the peak. Stayed in one a while back. Fun. It was white, more attractive imo.

Actually, windows or doors don't seem to be a problem. They come with side curtains, I believe, but the yurt we stayed in had regular double-pane windows and secure doors. This one even had a full interior bath.




But you can have a lot more flexibility with fenestration if you opt for the larger model (with factory-installed surround-sound pipe organ) called a "churt:"

I don't know about that one, Bajamigo. Looks a lot like the church in Santa Rosalia...but you're right. It DOES look like the inside of a yurt!

Always liked these. What thoughts has Yurtworks given to hurricanes?

I think you'd be like Dorothy and no longer in Kansas if inside a yurt during a chubasco. But maybe I'm missing something. They must've put thought to this and hence the question.

I think you just pop the little catch on the center pole and let it fold up, then toss it in the back of the truck.:biggrin:

Yurts are pretty wind resistant. Their low profile and round shape sheds wind better than most structures. They were originally developed and used on the vast barren and high plains of Asia which often have high winds. Today, yurts are often used in Alpine areas that experience high winds regularly.

I got a book about them a few years back from amazon and in that book they suggested using ropes and stakes to tie down the yurt in the event of serious winds. If anyone is interested "The complete yurt handbook" outlines how to build and erect 3 different types of yurts(3 different sizes as well); and includes much information on the history of the structures. For only being 115 pages or so, it is pretty informative and thorough. I've been contemplating building a smaller one for extended camping trips for a few years now. It would be great for a long term campsite. There is also much information online regarding the process of building one; although, the quality will most likely not be as finished or polished as the ones from Oregon Yurtworks Yurts.

Traditional yurts can be packed up and moved; but, I am not sure about the Oregon Yurtworks yurts. Somehow I don't think they would be as transportable as traditional yurts. They do look nice though.

here's the dealio ... the round yurt would probably take a few extra seconds to get airborn in a HURRICANE (not 'high wind') than a regular wooden box!! Time enuf to scream a few hail marys and adioses.

Ropes and stakes in a hurricane might not do the job--once the ground gets saturated the stakes can pull out. But you could tie them down the way the folks in Punta Abreojos do in hurricanes--tie them into concrete anchors (actually, in Abreojos they put j-hooked rebar into the house foundation and tie into them).

I spent some time in one in 2005 at the NPS headquarters near Hosmer Grove on the side of Haleakala on Maui. I can tell you, they can easily take a steady 40-50MPH no problem. But, they are VERY noisy at that speed. They apparently get even higher winds at that location too.....

Did you ever try to buy furniture for a round house? Good luck.
