What's it like living in a yurt?

Dear Erin,

My husband and I just visited Asheville last week and stayed in a yurt. We immediately got excited and wondered if you could live in one. Then we picked up a New Life Journal and there was your letter from the editor, and you mentioned you and your husband moving out of your yurt, so I am assuming that you live in it year round. And that brings me to the point. I have a couple of questions about your living arrangements, if you don't mind. How does the yurt handle the weather? How do you heat it? Do you have running water and bathroom facilities? How big is your yurt? How long have you lived in it? And how long do yurts last? I guess this list could go on and on. I don't want to bother you anymore, but I would love to hear back from you about these questions and anything else you want to add about your adventures living in a yurt. Thank you for your time and the magazine.

Dear Jennifer,

I've updated an article I wrote about yurts a few years ago to answer your questions. Please let us know if you and your husband decide to try yurt living for yourselves!
