Yurt enthusiasts favor the design of these tent-like homes because of the large, open feeling of the interior space and the possibilities they offer in terms of decoration and social activities. This model from Blue Ridge Yurts is a good example of a yurt that is ideal for a family vacation or summer home.
Once I had a tent like this - outfitted with curtains and wicker furniture and exotic smells coming from incense. Until one day there was a storm and because I lived within the confines of other city homes there was an updraft. I hung on like Mary Poppins but later decided I should take it down. Fun while it lasted!1
