|Backyard 12'2" Yurt|
There are many relevant sites to ponder that query and I'll be sharing some of those. For now, however, I'm very excited to discover a yurt manufacturer located on Oahu!
Nathan Toler, of Backyard Yurts, is a man of multi skills and endeavors. He knows the many reasons producing local is so important to achieve sustainable communities.
As islanders know, a fair price can turn sour when your order is shipped about 3,000 miles by sea. So locally made is a real "biggie" here. The bottom line is major savings.

Below are some FAQs and basic info. I am a sales rep for Big Island and would be happy to view your site and to determine the best options that will fulfill your vision.
You are also invited to tour my yurt in Pahoa, Puna District, that was made by The Colorado Yurt Company (which you can order online and pay enormous shipping). Visit my contact page to schedule an appointment.
Here is a video for you to witness construction details:

Our lowest standard wall height is 7-feet tall (other manufacturers start at 5-feet).
One door included. You may consider constructing a deck, canopy, an additional door, or roof outside the door. If you wish to provide your own selected door, $250 is deducted from the price.
Two 9-foot long clear vinyl roll-up windows with sewn-in screen for the Backyard model. The roll-up can be interior or exterior.
Can I have more than 2 windows?
Yes, you can even have a wall section roll up instead of the window, but there may be an upgrade fee.
Buyer decides, but pay attention to typical wind and rain direction. Also note sunrise and sunset locations, which will vary per season.
Clear sunroof dome with screen to vent air. No dome opener necessary!
The smallest 12-foot, 2-inch (120 square feet) "Backyard" model can fit a twin or double sized bed. Drawers below the bed are recommended. Larger yurts can accommodate any bed size desired, pending on floor plan.
Inquire for swatches to view. Oh, so many colors! Select for (1) roof, (2) main wall, and (3) base wall.
Plumbing with a water catchment is most common in Hawaii and a PVC flex rain gutter can be attached under the roof seam onto the rafters.
With solar, wind, or electric power, a standard 36-inch ceiling fan may be mounted under the dome.
50% of yurt cost order deposit; balance due plus shipping cost from Oahu upon manufacturer’s completion.
Shipping rates do vary almost on a daily basis, but expect between $100 to $250 freight cost from Honolulu to Hilo or Kona.
30 days for standard production, from date of deposit to ship-ready completion.
