Half Acrylic Finish - The front half of the toono is finished with acrylic.
Full Acrylic Finish - The full toono is finished with acrylic and include 2 opening windows in the back.
Mosquito Netting - A mosquito mesh will cover half of the toono and will be secured with velcro (mosquito nets are not available with full acrylic finishes).
Standard Urgh - A standard insulated top flap which covers the toono, comes with all of our yurts. The standard urgh can be easily opened to promote air circulation and closed for warmth. It is operated from outside the yurt.
Clear Vinyl Urgh - A clear vinyl cover is secured with 4 ropes on top of the toono. The clear vinyl is a great solution for closing the toono while also providing the maximum amount of sunlight to come through. The vinyl cover also offers optimal rain protection.
Clear Vinyl Urgh with Chimney Opening - The clear vinyl urgh can come with a chimney opening. A must for having a stove inside your yurt!
Classic Platform - Our insulated tongue and groove platforms are easy to transport and quick to assemble. They are created from sheets of styrofoam that are sandwiched between sheets of plywood. We highly recommend raising your yurt off the ground and having a platform built.
Weather Treatment Option - A weather treatment option for our platforms is available to protect against snow, rain, and other elements. The treatment is done with a Thompson seal varnish, 2 layers of high-quality latex varnish.
Depending on where you live and the climate you'll be exposed to, you may want to consider adding a second layer of insulation for your yurt. The thickness of one layer of insulating felts is approximately ½”.
You can customize your yurt with a second layer of roof felt or a complete layer that covers the roof and the walls. When ordered with a new yurt, you can get the second insulation layer at a 30% discount!
House Wrap - A pre-cut layer of house wrap is placed between the insulation and canvas. This provides optimal weather resistance while also allowing the yurt to breathe and circulate air effectively.
Extra Doors & Windows - Your yurt can be customized to have additional doors and windows for easy access, ventilation, and natural light. We don’t recommend installing more than three windows or extra doors.
Mosquito Netting (Walls) - 3ft high mosquito netting that is installed at the base of the yurt walls allowing the side of the canvas and covers to be lifted in warmer weather to improve ventilation.
For starters, Mongolians could not imagine having a toilet in their ger. Our customers as well, often choose a separate space for their washroom facilities. The truth is that having a shower or bathtub where large amounts of humidity are produced is not recommended in a Mongolian ger.
Additionally, running plumbing through the yurt can lead to a variety of challenges and issues. That being said, we have successfully tested the Humanure system and love it. This is the simplest compostable toilet system, and it is easy to do yourself. We occasionally have our own Humanure toilets in stock, so please ask our team about them if you are interested.
