Other than spending a couple of nights in a yurt, what points are important to emphasize when trying to convince my wife that living in a yurt for a few years would be both adventuresome and cost effective? She's a fantastic woman and, above all else, I want her to be happy with where we end up - but I know her well enough to know that not making a mortgage or rent payment every month would make her very, very happy. We have no kids, 2 dogs, and will be moving to the Blacksburg, VA area.
Are you that sure it would be fun? Sounds like a real drag to me. Your post title asks, "Should we? Not knowing your wife, I can't say for sure. But if I were her, promises of working indoor plumbing and consistent, reliable heat for the winter would convince me. Can you rig up plumbing in your yurt- even just a toilet and one spout for water? Can you heat it without burning it down? The kicker would be if there would be an easy way to cook: not just a camp stove, but a real kitchen with refrigeration and electricity.
I know some yurts are more luxurious than others, and some of this will depend on finding land on the grid with easy to hook up plumbing and electricity. Why do you want to live in a yurt? Start there. Either she wants to live in a yurt or she doesn't. I don't think there is any way to convince her. You already got your pick - you're going to the medical school of your choice. Now let her pick where to live. Don't push your luck. I'm not the best person to answer, because I know too many people who disliked living in yurts.
But I'll give it a shot. Would she be into that? If you go the yurt route, you'll have to figure out how to deal with the fact that there are no corners. From what I hear, this is a surprisingly annoying feature of yurts. You can buy little rectangular add-ons for storage or for an entryway where you put your muddy boots and dripping rain gear, and those seem to help make yurt living work better.
They might be essential, depending on how big your dogs are. One person I know ended up hanging fabrics eg, heavy rugs all over the place to insulate the yurt, so in terms of convincing your wife, uh, is she into fabrics? What's your theory on the plumbing and kitchen? Are you going to dig an outhouse and build a solar shower and outdoor kitchen? If so, it sounds to me like you're going to need to get her into the whole hippy living scene I say as a fan.
To do this, maybe take her to visit Earthaven Ecovillage or The Farm? Maybe do a week-long permaculture course at Earthaven. You could check out some permaculture convergence I had a great time at the one at Celo in Go with friends who won't roll their eyes at things like drumming and bonfires.
Sage over at quirkynomads. You might spend some time looking through her archives to get a feel for what the experience was like, and what aspects of it might appeal to your wife. I took a very quick look through her archives , and it looks like the yurt years were something like , if that helps you narrow it down at all. It's a tent. It's marginally more waterproof but you'll be living at the ambient outdoor temperature. There is no insulation. I have stayed in a yurt at Silent Lake Provincial Park several times. It's slightly more comfy than tenting it, but only because you're not sleeping on the ground.
Even simple stuff like the overnight temperature drops were tough the one year when we went and it was very cold overnight. Unless you live in Arizona or Florida you'll be cold and if you do live there then you'll often be really hot. Also, you typically can't get financing for bare land unless you know something that I don't. No house, no mortgage. If you'll be in medical school you may have access to subsidized housing options e. While you'll be in medical school don't you want to minimize complications of your life? It seems like living in a yurt would be more complicated than a more normal living situation.
I realize it's nowhere near as hip as a yurt, but in my area you can buy a perfectly functional mobile home with all the amenities for less than a basic yurt. It had heating, air conditioning, indoor plumbing, etc. I parked it on land that I owned. The main expense was the septic system; if you don't want that, you can always use a pit. She's agreeing to move with you to a new place. While you're in med school, she will be spending a lot of time without you, in a place where she doesn't have any ties, which may be a drag.
Probably a lot of this time in the house, without you. Were it me, spending time alone in a yurt, cold, with no personal space, taking care of the dogs, on the outskirts of a town where I don't know anybody, while my husband was busy with his new colleagues and intellectual challenges, would be a recipe for seething resentment.
You're taking out loans for med school, right? Don't they allow you to put some of that money toward living expenses? I guess my point is that this is true of whatever type of housing you choose - she will be spending a lot of time there alone. The thing is, you're going to be in medical school. So maybe a bit more space albeit more expensive than a yurt might be good for your sanity and your wife's. Maybe you can keep the yurt for summer living.
