No other yurt manufacturer produces a building system capable of withstanding the same wind and snow loads as our yurt structures. It’s an advanced frame of mind – the world’s first and only steel-framed yurt!

THE MOST MODERN YURT NOW AVAILABLE FROM WEATHERPORT
When we set out to design a modern yurt capable of meeting specific wind and snow loads for safety, while combining the advanced features and award-winning benefits people love about WeatherPort structures, we had no idea how popular our steel frame yurt would be! The response has been amazing, to say the least!
Our yurts have been used around the world for the following:
- KOA Campgrounds (WeatherPort is an official vendor!)
- Private Cabins or Vacation Homes
- Tiny Homes, Tiny Living, and Off-Grid Living
- Wilderness Resorts and Eco-Adventure Tours
- Rental Shops and Luxury Guest Accommodations for Ski Resorts & Lodges
- Fishing, Hunting, and Guide Outfitting Camps
Our modern and luxury yurts for sale offer a clear-span interior, maximizing the use of interior space. And unlike metal yurt kits that claim to be “yurts” but are just a hexagon-shaped metal building with a metal roof, luxury yurts for sale from WeatherPort maintain the sense and feel of yurt living, while providing modern-day conveniences and safety features. No yurt cabin kits or metal yurt kits can compare!
Yurt Loft System
Have lofty ideas? Our engineers and designers have been hard at work developing a loft system that integrates beautifully with the WeatherPort yurt structure, turning your one-story yurt into a two-story retreat! When not in use, simply fold up the ladder with the hinged ladder system. You’ll find the increased living space is perfect for tiny home living or off-grid living, while reducing the overall footprint of your luxury yurt!
Windows & Doors
Gone are the olden days of wood lattice obstructing your beautiful and expansive views. WeatherPort yurts rely on the engineering of our high-strength steel frame system, giving our customers the ability to custom-design a yurt with a large assortment of window and door options. We use energy-efficient sliding glass windows to increase natural light and ventilation. Enjoy the painting-like view of the changing leaves over a hot cup of coffee on those chilly fall mornings from the safety and comfort of your WeatherPort yurt! For more rustic yurt applications, we also offer our clear fabric windows!
Venting Dome Skylight
Enjoy natural light with our 36-inch acrylic dome skylight with an actuator, which allows hot air to escape out of the top and cooler air to enter through windows and doors on the sidewalls.
Planning to keep your yurt up year-round or use it seasonally during the winter? Create a comfortable yurt living space with WeatherPort’s proprietary EnerLayer™ insulation system, capable of meeting any R-value to reduce heating and cooling costs.
Lighting & Electrical Systems
We understand our customers’ needs when it comes to setting up a yurt in a beautiful and remote location. In such cases, there may not be an electrician readily available, so we have designed many plug-and-play lighting and electrical systems that do not require hiring an electrician. These systems are designed to work perfectly with your WeatherPort yurt. Be sure to ask about our energy-efficient LED lighting options!
Choose Your Yurt Fabric Colors
Whether you want your luxury yurt to blend in with the beauty of the environment and its surroundings or stand out and be noticed, WeatherPort offers a large assortment of standard fabric colors to choose from. Select a single solid color or specify multiple colors and tell us what pattern would make your WeatherPort yurt the perfect retreat!
Powder Coating Color Choices
Luxury yurts from WeatherPort come standard with powder-coated frames for added protection against corrosion, as well as for aesthetics. The default powder coating color is gray. This color compliments the white interior liner, directing your attention to expansive views outside or colorful decorations inside your yurt. Should you wish to choose a different powder coating color, we offer the following colors:
Our fabrics are UV-stabilized; will not rot; are mold-, mildew-, and flame-resistant; exceed California’s Code of Regulations (CCR) for membrane structures codes; and will provide decades of use and protection from harsh and extreme weather! We have customers that have used their original architectural membranes for more than 30 years!
