Home: A Photo Essay

I keep trying to write about our new home – a yurt!! – on this big hill – off the grid!!! – and I keep tripping over words.

I just can’t do it. I give up! Here are photos of our new home instead.

the round copper loft YURT we live in. 

Yurts are really transportable dwellings that are from Mongolia. Ours is technically not really a yurt since it’s not temporary – it is made of copper, concrete, adobe. But it’s perfectly round and built in the style of a yurt.

Dig it. An outhouse!! And the shower is made of pallets and is outside!! The house is round, yurt style.
