Modern yurts are based on the traditional nomadic living space of Central Asia. Yurt homes have been in use for over three thousand years, in extreme conditions. A relatively recent development is the modern yurt. Structurally, this kind of yurt is the strongest possible configuration for a yurt type abode. Yurts can enclose more space with less material than normal buildings while being both strong and beautiful.

Lifespace Yurts feature the most durable and beautiful timbers, best quality coverings, stainless steel fixings and specialist yurt joinery. All components are optimally sized for strength and durability. Our yurts come with an opening acrylic skylight.

Unlike normal buildings, yurt door frames are a structural component and yurt doors are often more exposed than in conventional buildings. In questing for decades of service, our top end yurt joinery is assembled to yacht building standards, ensuring a long service life.

PVC yurt cladding is the most durable and lowest maintenance option. When painted with water based acrylic paint, PVC is quite a durable material. " My first yurt is still going strong after 18 years with it's original PVC cover and 2 coats of water based acrylic house paint". We work with both PVC and canvas as requested by our customers.

While clear PVC windows with zips are less expensive to produce, they must be operated from outside the yurt (often during rainy weather). They are also less durable than well made wood framed windows which can be fitted with double glazing. We make both types to suit your preference.

Prices for a basic yurt range from around $16,000.00 to $25,000.00 plus optional extras. We produce both a very high quality standard range of yurts, and our no holds bared, Supreme Quality yurts. Why not contact us today?

Beautiful, top-quality yurts, made with care and meticulous attention to detail. My yurt is so special, I love it. She weathers the storms, keeps me warm in winter and is a magical place to just be.

This yurt maker is a craftsman artist and you will get an amazing yurt. for years he has researched what is best for NZ environments. Each one is an art piece and will last for years. My 2 yurts must be at least 10 years old now and have easily withstood the most serious of tree snapping storms.... even a recent tornado. They are soooo warm in the winter and beautifully dry too. He chooses the best woods and materials that are strong and durable. I cannot recommend more highly! I love mine. F
