Hello there! My husband and I are moving to Alaska soon. We are interested in buying land and a yurt but we are worried about the difficulty of financing. How did you finance your lovely yurt home?
@ wildlingoreiad We saved our money for a long time to buy the yurt and did not own the land the yurt was on. It was a great deal, but it did not last forever. We no longer live in the yurt but have it on our property. Financing a yurt is pretty difficult for many reasons, but a big one is that banks don't feel much confidence is being able to sell the property if the owners end up defaulting. One way people get around it is by buying land, "building a house," and living in the yurt temporarily. That future house may be in construction for(ever) a long time and you get to live in the yurt in the meantime. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
