About: Laksar Eggleton has been making yurts since 1998. He is a builder and furniture maker with over 40 years of producing experience­.
Services offered: Manufactur­ing the best quality kitset and bespoke yurts to order. Production time is usually 8-12 weeks. Sizes vary from 5 to 7 mtrs.
Areas serviced: Shipping can be arranged nation wide.
Availability: These yurts are very durable, weather proof, well insulated and cosy! We are very aware that durability is a large part of sustainabi­lity.
Modern yurts enclose more space with less material than normal buildings while being cozy, strong and beautiful. Our yurts have been engineered for high wind areas. They meet the same durability standards as normal houses. Our yurts are the best ! If you can find a better fabric covered yurt in production anywhere we want to know.

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. We produce all of the yurt components here in NZ.

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 20+ years with it's original PVC cover and 2 coats of water based acrylic house paint".

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. While our PVC windows are designed for long life and easy replacement, We prefer to supply long lasting timber framed windows.

Prices for a basic yurt start from around $20,000.00 to $30,000.00 inc. GST plus optional extras. If you are in a position to order a yurt, please make contact and view our product in person.

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
