Three story Family Yurt
Mike's Friend and Mentor, Bill Coperthwaite designed this yurt for Josh and Melanie. Before his passing, Bill and Mike were planning to build this yurt together. Sadly, Mike had to continue without Bill in preparing to build the yurt. Mike led the two two-week workshops in August and October of 2014. It was a great joy to share those four weeks with all the great folks near the coast of Maine with sunshine on our skin and sawdust in our hair. Contact Mike and he can send you a yurt plan, or design a custom yurt!
Mike designed this Sauna for his homestead. It has a 6' diameter at the base and can accommodate 4 people with plenty of space, 6 a bit closer. I've done a couple tests and it works wonderfully with an old waterford 101 wood stove - 150 deg F no problem. If it had a sauna specific stove, I bet it would be superb. Additonally, the acoustics inside are equally sweet. It gets worked on when we have time... bit by bit. The holes in the upper part of the roof are to allow roof venting because we plan to install a metal roof.

Mike was lucky to lend a hand in a two-week workshop (led by Bill Coperthwaite) in 2011 during which we made this gorgeous two-story wooden yurt.
