The deck is finished and the yurt itself goes up today! Here we see the entire crew - Mark, Ben, Ian, and Doug. Doug Perrin is the contractor for the deck and yurt, which comes as a kit from Pacific Yurts of Cottage Grove, Oregon. This yurt, like its namesake from the Mongolian steppe, is a temporary structure designed to be erected or taken down and moved in a single day. The yurt's wall is an expandable lattice that we see our crew pulling around the deck in this picture. It will support a layer of insulation and an outer canvas sheath.
