Yurts are pretty cool!  They can be erected in around the same time as it takes to pitch a tent, but once erected you have the strength, protection and security of a timber framed building. Yurts are  more of a semi-permanent dwelling traditionally used by nomadic tribes people.  The only negative with a yurt is their packed up size and weight. You are pretty much going to need a vehicle to transport one.

A yurt would be amazing for bugging-out in, lots of security, protection and durability and providing you have a vehicle they are very mobile. I haven’t seen much (if any) talk in the prepper community about the use of yurts, which I think is surprising giving the benefits for a semi-permanent dwelling.  After all, they are tried and tested by nomadic tribes people, and if you bug-out for whatever reason, that is effectively what you will become!

With a few tools and a bit of DIY skill, a yurt is surprisingly simple to build and once built, it will last for years. I have found a great website that contains a complete guide to building your own yurt. The website also sells a much more in-depth book about yurts.  Check it out below.
