The young family did not manage to raise money to buy ordinary housing. Once they saw a video about yurts and decided that this type of housing is quite suitable for life, if they make normal repairs in it. Of course, you can’t paste wallpaper inside, but Zach and Nicole came up with a plan, and six months later they showed the interior that they managed to create inside.
The traditional yurt, in general terms, is a portable round insulated tent 6-9 meters in diameter. It is still actively used by the nomadic peoples of Central Asia, so finding and buying a frame is not a problem. Zach and Nicole decided to take the traditional design as a basis, but give it a new sound in the context of the modern world – for example, to make a normal bedroom and kitchen there.
The purchased yurt with a diameter of 9 meters was thought out in such a way as to fully use the entire space. From the outside, it looks like a classic dwelling of nomads, but inside nothing reminds of tents. The entire interior design of the yurt is built around the central room, inside which a bathroom with a toilet was installed, and a kitchen was built into the wall.
The roof of the block inside the yurt is the floor of the bedroom – the height of the tent was enough to build on the second floor with a bed. Each yurt has a light window: here it has become the natural lighting of the bedroom.
All other functional parts of the first floor are divided by zoning into the dining and living areas. A small video tour of a modern yurt: Zach and Nicole invited the neighbors to a housewarming party. After seeing what a nomadic yurt looks like inside, many of them put aside their skepticism, and some even wanted to get a similar house for themselves.
