Eagerly Awaiting Our Colorado Yurt

We have been researching yurts for years and have always had our hearts set on a 30’ Pacific Yurt. In the end, however we purchased a Colorado Yurt.

We first heard of yurts through Country Side Magazine and Mother Earth News magazine ads. Pacific Yurts has beautiful ads and beautiful photography.

When I called Pacific Yurts about purchasing one, their lead time was 17 weeks! That meant that as soon as we were pretty set on a land purchase, it would take months before our yurt was ready to ship. We don’t have the luxury of renting while setting our home up so we began looking into other companies.

I thought of looking for a used yurt on Craigslist and found Bud's Yurts. Bud is a very friendly man who shares his knowledge readily. He had 20’ yurts for sale on Craigslist and lived about 15 minutes from us in California. We went out to his property where he had a yurt erected and to his shop where he showed us how he manufactures yurts as well as all about the platforms and how to erect a yurt.

We wanted more options than Bud could supply and 20’ was too small for our family to live in so, even though we really wanted to work with Bud and he would provide free delivery, we continued our search.

Some yurt designs we love. We love Pacific Yurts, Rainier Yurts, and Colorado Yurts. In the end it came down to lead time and price. Pacific Yurts had the lowest prices of the three companies but the lead time was a problem. Rainier yurts has an awesome website but they are very high end. Colorado yurts has a fantastic sales team and by the time we called them we had a floor plan thoroughly sketched out and had used the tools from Rainier’s and Pacific Yurt’s websites making the options with Colorado Yurts a breeze.

We put 50% down and were given an 8 week lead time for the completion of our yurt. We made the decision the day our raw land offer was accepted. We chose to have it delivered by freight truck because the freight charge was the same price as driving to Colorado and paying sales tax on the yurt. Which is good because we didn’t really want to drive to Colorado.
