my yurt review

Remember this cabin? (Not the cabin that is shown above, but the one in the article link.) I had fallen in love with it at first sight. True love, not the superficial kind of love that you get when you see something or someone that strikes your fancy. You know, the love that only happens to you once in a lifetime. Well, it’s happened again!

I was kidding, of course. It totally was superficial.

I came across this yurt getaway on the Tiny House Blog. In summary, Eric wanted a weekend getaway on an island just off of the Washington coast. He wanted to build it as inexpensively and quickly as possible, thus making it off the grid and tiny. Furnished with a vintage icebox, stainless steel freestanding sink, minimal seating, and southwestern accents, I’m confident in admitting that I’m pining after it. (Pining, get it? Because it’s in the forest.) It’s unique shape only adds to its appeal. The fact that he also has a dog in the photographs? Well, he just bumped it up from puppy love to true love. (Puppy love. I did it again.)

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
