A Yurt is a traditional felt home of the nomads who live on the cold, barren steppes of Central Asia. In the U.S. today, yurts are made using hi-tech materials. They are highly engineered and built for extreme weather conditions. In addition, erecting one can take days and they are not intended to be moved often. Often the designs of these U.S. yurts hardly resemble the original designs and are better named modern yurts or yurt derivations.
