Concentric Yurt Plan
-This is one yurt within another. The inner yurt supports the roof of the outer one, saving in materials and providing a larger living space under one roof than the Standard Yurt allows. This concentric way of dividing the circle gives a delightful feel of flowing space in the outer ring, and a sense of shelter and seclusion in the inner yurt. The inner yurt is raised a half story, with a resulting understory that provides space for a couch, bookshelves, pantry, storage, bunks, etc. Concentric yurts are used as permanent homes, summer homes, community common rooms, and seminar and library spaces. The Concentric yurt has five times the space of a Standard Yurt and, with 26 windows, is flooded with light. 1,000 sq. ft. - 37 foot diameter at the eaves. This plan was created by Bill Coperthwaite in 1983 and is printed in Maine.
