The "what if I moved into a yurt" idea I've been pondering for a while might become more than an idea. Turns out my folks are pretty supportive regarding this hypothetical project.
Now, this would mean lots of planning, finding a suitable and affordable place, getting in touch with the builders, with the bankers (ugh), surviving the whole administrative mess, building the yurt, then moving in... if possible in that order.
It's a bit daunting, but it's way more exciting than daunting.
@thomasorus @focus404 I’m looking into yurts designed for permanent use, following the latest insulation norms (which are pretty strict), so I’m not worried. Heating is apparently very efficient. Also, the north is not especially cold. Temperatures are less extreme than in the more continental areas further south. And sure, it’s wet, but the last few years have seen increasingly more sun, "thanks" to climate change.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
