Our team of Yurt Makers redesigned the frames to arctic specification to support the weight of the winter snow. A decision made with the client to over-engineer the structures to survive further North, means we are ready for future Arctic projects as required. The modular component design of our Yurts made them easy to install on the wooden decks that stretch out into the lake.
Winter covers and thermal linings meant the Yurts would withstand the subzero temperatures, without even breaking a sweat! To date, we have supplied 18 Yurts to Canvas Hotel, and we continue to enjoy the creative collaboration.
In 2018 the camp got a big upgrade with new covers for the older yurts (up for 8 years in all weathers), a huge 24ft lounge-yurt (7.5m diameter), 5 meters up to the roof with hanging fireplace, “Loo Pods” in all Yurts (pictured left) to provide en-suite facilities and the addition of new accommodation yurts.
