The Complete Yurt Handbook, by Paul King was a title that I ran across repeatedly when doing my online yurt research a few years back. With all of the rave reviews, and the fact that we’ve been looking into yurts so seriously, I felt we needed to pick up a copy and see for ourselves.
The piece is done in black and white with loads of diagrams and information. If you are looking for an “ooh and ah” book with lots of colorful interior design images, this isn’t it. However, if you are looking for extensive information on the details regarding the history and the assembly techniques for building your own, this is the book for you. Personally, it might be a fun family project to try . . . someday. But for me, the first one we put up for our personal use will be from a company with detailed instructions. However, those of you with handy building skills will really appreciate this book for the detail it offers.
