We've always loved yurts. Ever since that time we camped in one during a family trip to Oregon.
So, excuse our totally geeked-out excitement over ECOSHACK's Nomad Yurt. We just want one. Badly. And we know consumption for consumption's sake is not good, but we're having a hard time controlling this urge.
Realistically, we won't be buying one anytime soon: We can't afford it ($6,800), we have no place for it, and they're apparently out of stock. But if/when, years from now, we do buy one, we're not going to feel too bad.
We imagine a yurt like this (made with bamboo flooring and a bamboo frame) could be the perfect solution for those with a yard but not enough living space.
It could be a playroom for the kids, the coolest guest room ever, an office, a yoga studio ... And, considering how little material is used and how thoughtfully the pieces of the Nomad have been designed and manufactured, this yurt beats new construction/adding-on any day.
Plus, doesn't it look like fun?
