As the industry leader, our yurt design has often been imitated
but never equaled. That's because we devote so much attention to
details. Attention to detail requires a commitment of both time
and money, but we know we’re investing in our future and this is
reflected in everything we do. Better products mean happier
customers, and happier customers mean repeat business and great
So we only use the finest materials in our yurts and we engineer
them to withstand extreme conditions. Could
we get by with less? Other companies do. But at Pacific Yurts,
we don't cut corners. When you examine the strength, frame, fabrics, hardware and
options on the Pacific Yurt you will see
that the difference is in the details.
"It's no wonder you are so successful with both a quality
product and superb customer service. Your company is in another
league when it comes to good old USA quality and service.
- Robert S., Arizona
Let the wind howl and the snow pile up...
While others may say their yurts are naturally strong, that's
a claim that doesn't stand up under close inspection. We
invite you to compare engineering specifications. You'll
find no other yurt measures up to the elements like a Pacific
Yurt, engineered to be the strongest in the industry. As a
complete assembly (the only accurate way to test strength),
our yurt is professionally engineered to meet strict Uniform
Building Code and International Building Code structural standards.
We invented and engineered the snow and wind support kits and
upgrades to ensure our yurt was truly designed for all-season
use. Our largest yurt can be designed to withstand snow loads
up to 100 pounds per square feet and wind up to 100 miles per
All of Pacific Yurts' engineering includes combined and uneven
loading to assure user safety. We include safety allowances and
engineer to worst-case loads instead of "perfect
conditions." Engineering to perfect conditions does not
reflect real life; still, it’s a lower standard some
manufacturers use in order to inflate performance results.
"I was most impressed with the strength and snow load capacity
of the yurt which, along with its spacious and aesthetically
pleasing interior, provided ample warmth, comfort and all-around
enjoyment to our back country ski experience."
- Tom S., Colorado
The best wood frame in the industry,
direct from the Pacific Northwest.
Located in the heart of Pacific Northwest timber country, we
are committed to the highest quality in our materials and
workmanship. For example, at the mill we hand select only the
finest kiln dried, selected structural, second growth Douglas
fir from carefully managed forests for our frame. We never substitute
lesser species or lower grades. This attention to every
detail, as well as our dedication to sustainable building
practices and environmental responsibility, is maintained
throughout the construction of every yurt. With more than 200
years combined experience in wood products manufacturing, our
woodworkers know quality and they will accept nothing less than
"...the biggest change here is the upgrade of our yurts. This
season we are happy to be proud owners of three new Pacific Yurts.
Everyone will enjoy the upgrade to the finest accommodations the
yurt world has to offer."
- Diane V., Wyoming
When it comes to award-winning fabric
design, we've got you covered.
There is no substitute for experience, and we've put our over 30 year
track record to good use in many ways that benefit our customers.
For example, with thousands of our yurts in use all over the
world, we are able to conduct extensive and ongoing field testing.
This has enabled us to incorporate into our yurt design many
innovations, including the best performing and most attractive
fabric in the industry.
"The engineering, the quality of materials and the strength
- Josephine P., Washington
Pacific Yurts uses only reinforced vinyl fabric or woven polyester, both
of which provide the ideal combination of strength, durability and overall
performance in all weather conditions. These materials have proven far superior
to cotton or cotton blended fabrics, which are susceptible to mildew and mold
and require more maintenance.
Our yurts and architectural fabric design have received widespread
acclaim and have been honored by the Industrial Fabrics Association
with an International Achievement Award for Excellence. What
matters more to our customers, though, is that our fabrics are
backed with the industry's best warranties.
Fabrics are flame resistant and available in a wide range of colors.
Hardware combines strength and beauty
Made exclusively for Pacific Yurts, our custom snow and wind
hardware is designed for beauty, strength and durability. It
is available in stainless steel with yellow zinc coating for
an attractive finish that blends naturally with the warm
color of our fine wood components. All exterior bolts and
screws are stainless steel, and our lockset is warranted for
Simplicity or luxury?
The options are limitless.
When we pioneered the modern lattice wall yurt, that was only
the beginning. In the more than 30 years since, we've also developed a
vast array of custom
options to allow you to personalize and enhance your Pacific
Yurt according to your individual needs and tastes. Each
design option has been extensively tested, not only in our own
manufacturing facility but also on our own personal yurts.
From NASA-developed reflective insulation to beautiful French
doors, we have the options that can help you make your Pacific
Yurt truly a space of your own.

"I've long been admiring the works of Pacific Yurts of Cottage Grove, Oregon, the original U.S. yurt maker. They create a versatile, high quality, affordable product, which has the advantage of having more have-it-your-way options than any other. And they have excellent customer service as well."
