Thinking of putting up a Yurt for the time being until I can build the cabin I want on my property. I was thinking that I could build a foundation on stilts, 6x6 pilings in cement about 5-6 feet off the ground so as to keep the bears out of it w/ a single set of stairs or a ladder going up to it. Looks somewhat cheaper and alot faster than a cabin at this time for me. The cabin I want to build is gonna be about 12000-15000 in materials, and I'm about 20 miles west of Kashwitna so I'll have to bring in loads w/ my utility sled. A Nomad shelter http://www.nomadshelter.com/ looks like a good alternative for me at this point in my life. A pot belly stove and cots around. Anyone live in one of these, if so how did you like it? I think that they are cool looking. Looking at the 16' model.
Thanks Billy Jack
