“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately…” in a yurt. When Thoreau went to the woods, he didn’t have the advantage of having an easy to assemble home. Since Thoreau’s stay at Walden pond, an extended stay in the woods has become a whole lot more comfortable. A yurt is an eco-friendly, easy to assemble home that is capable of withstanding serious weather conditions. Some yurts even have built in electric and plumbing systems!
So whether you desire a one room palace in the middle of nowhere or you want to get a bit of land, a few animals, and a garden, then a yurt is just what you’re looking for. Check them out for yourself! And take a look at the assembly videos in the gallery to see just how simple life can really be!

Matia Guardabascio is a proud citizen of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in both English and French Literature. As the daughter of a musician and a school teacher, Matia grew up in a musical household with parents who made a concerted effort to instill in her the value and importance of the arts. She is a music enthusiast, an avid reader, a writer of prose and poetry, a traveler, and an enthusiastic imbiber of red wine. The piano is her favorite instrument, followed by the drums, and she loves Impressionist artwork, especially because she doesn’t need to wear her glasses to see what’s going on. That’s right, the glasses are not for show. She wears tri-focals because she reads too much, or as her good friends might say, she actually 80-years-old.
