yurts in norway

January 31, 2011

i‘ve been toying with the idea of building a yurt.

what the heck is a yurt?

basically, it’s a mongolian tent-like home built with canvas and a wood lattice frame.  nowadays you can order one online, and customize it in all sorts of ways.

i don’t really know exactly where, or exactly why, i would build my yurt… but seeing these pictures of the canvas hotel in norway kind of answers both of those questions.

the canvas hotel.

customize your own yurt.

    The Mongolian family in the movie “Babies” has a wonderful yurt filled with all sorts of overlapping oriental rugs and patterns. There are also babies in the film, so I recommend it (although there is a lack of puppies, so there’s that against it… there is a chicken but that is not a suitable substitute).
