Our Orion line is a modern take on the classic yurt. The unique framing increases the strength alongside wind and snow load, while reducing weight and over all materials used. This allows lower-impact installation in more remote and sensitive areas.

The octagonal shape creates a far more functional living space and provides greater flexibility in designs and function. We can add a second story, different wall options, and extra bump outs, all of which are not usually available with round yurts.

Standard kits come with: wooden frame and hardware, one frame door, one frame window, four zip-out windows, and two plain panels. You can build the kit yourself or have us install it for you.

  • Hard sides – Add hard sides for a more traditional cabin look. Choose from a variety of siding materials including cedar, metal, and wood logs.
  • Custom options – Want a different color or material? We can do that! Contact us for custom options.

Add a variety of additional features to make your living space suit your needs.


  • Additional windows and/or doors – additional doors and windows can be added to any side of the structure.
  • Vent Fan – Add a vent fan in the peak of the roof to maximize ventilation, minimize heating and cooling costs, and make the interior more inviting and comfortable year-round. 
  • Loft – The 26 ft and 32 ft models can have a loft over ½ to ¾ of the main living area. These work great as an extra sleeping space and are a fun adventure for kids (and kids at heart).


  • Second story– All yurt sizes can be built with a second story, doubling the square footage of the living area. This is an excellent way to add living space for full kitchen and bathroom or more sleeping areas within a small footprint.
  • Bump outs – You can add 8-foot bump outs to one or more of the walls. This creates a space perfectly sized for a small separate bedroom or kids room.
  • Exterior decks – The deck options are endless with the yurts from a simple entry deck to a full 360-degree deck around the entire unit.
  • Other shapes – Because of our unique framing, we are able to elongate two sides of the yurt, making it an oval shape. The end result is still an eight-sided yurt but with increased space.
