Portable, easy-to-install structures with myriad uses. From $3,800
Yurts are a time-tested form of shelter that are great for a backyard office, studio or workspace, guest house or camping. This Vallejo manufacturer sells them to Burning Man attendees for use at the annual festival. The basic kit for a 12-foot Yurt can be enhanced to include a floor system and other accessories for additional cost. Two-person set-up takes less than an hour, plus time for suggested weatherizing steps. Shipping is extra.
