Custom Features

Pacific Yurts, the original designer and manufacturer of modern lattice wall yurts, began constructing and selling yurts over thirty-seven years ago. We have listened to and worked with thousands of customers worldwide enhancing our yurts to meet their needs. Our experience and the proven performance of the Pacific Yurt in many unique situations assure you of an exceptionally high level of customer satisfaction. Why should you accept anything less?

Our tradition of innovation is continued with the introduction of the options included in this custom features page. Each option within this section was designed and developed exclusively by Pacific Yurts to assist you in creating your own space.

"We want to thank you for making this adventure a pleasant one! It is truly a pleasure to work with such a professional company that is so interested in their customer's satisfaction."
- Earl and Kathy D., North Carolina

If you are already the proud owner of a Pacific Yurt, you can add some of the following options to your existing yurt. Other options are available only with a new purchase.

Side Cover Options

Side Cover

Our standard Side Cover, made of high quality 100% woven polyester fabric, provides exceptional strength, durability and low maintenance. Optional Vinyl Side Cover is also available. Proven performance of both fabrics assures you of long lasting value. There are many custom colors to choose from such as Forest Green or Terra Cotta.

Additional Windows for your yurt
Additional Std. Windows

Windows can be located around the perimeter of the yurt, to take advantage of a view and coordinate with your interior layout. They also furnish additional light and ventilation, adding to the spacious open feeling of the yurt. They’re made of extra strong, clear vinyl, framed in tear-away Velcro and include zippered window flaps and sewn-in screens. Which means mosquitoes stay out. Windows open from outside.

Pacific Yurts Window Awning Frame
Window Awning Frame

The Window Awning Frame consists of an anodized aluminum framework to support the window flap. This creates an overhang allowing the windows to be left open for ventilation.

Custom Curve Glass Window System
Custom Curve™ Glass Window System
Pacific Yurts Custom Curve window system is truly unique in the industry. It features an openable, efficient low-E thermal glass window mounted to a structurally engineered curved frame to match the circular shape of the yurt. This innovative design eliminates the "flat panel" look used by others, and our exclusive fabric flange assures a weather tight seal. Order with a new yurt or retrofit to your existing Pacific Yurt. Customize with your own finishing touches. Not available on 12' and 14' models.

Insulation Options

Insulated Window Covers

These covers are made of reflective insulation with a fabric liner facing to match the interior insulation of your roof and sides. These will insulate your windows during the coldest times of the year and are easy to attach and remove. It’s like a pair of long johns for your window. Consider insulating some windows while leaving others uncovered for light and view.

Insulation Liners
Insulation Liners

If it’s good enough for astronauts in space, you’d better believe it will help keep you warm here on Earth. Our seven-layer reflective insulation was developed by NASA. We cover it with an ivory colored fabric for an attractive interior finish. An ideal vapor barrier, it works by reflecting radiant heat in both directions, keeping the yurt warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It is custom designed to match your window and door placement.

Door Options

Window Door and Frame

This high quality, beautiful Douglas fir door with clear acrylic window and inset wood panel comes pre-hung in a frame laminated for extra strength. We custom make it here in our own shop, treat it with a penetrating oil for a stunning natural finish and add a quality locking lever. This inviting entryway provides additional light and a broader view. Who wouldn’t want that? Also available with windows at the top and bottom (Double Window Door).

Panel Door

It has all the strength and beauty of our standard window door, but features inset wood panels in the top and bottom instead. Because sometimes you'll want to keep others out and have the whole place to yourself.

French Doors

You can almost see the Seine when you look out through these doors. They’re hand-built right here in our shop and are truly elegant with wood panels at the bottom and strong durable Plexiglas windows. They architecturally enhance the design of any yurt with a wider access and additional view. They’re available for the 16' yurt and larger models.

Screen Door

Beautiful solid wood screen door includes self-closing hinges and heavyweight screen. Provides extra ventilation while keeping the bugs out.

Upgrade Hardware for Door Screen
Upgrade Hardware for Screen Door

This option upgrades the standard spring-loaded steel screen door hinges to solid brass butt hinges. Also included is a pneumatic door closer.

Door Screen Curtain
Door Screen Curtain

Open your door and let in the fresh air, but not the bugs! The Door Screen Curtain attaches to the top inside of the door frame and is weighted at the bottom. Keep insects outside where they belong!

Extra Door and Frame

Add a back or side entrance for easy access to decks, hot tubs, gardens or additional views. Available on 16' and larger. Ask about placement options.

Top Cover Options

Rain Diverter
Rain Diverter (included)

Our Rain Diverter is a professional at diverting rain water away from the entry. This inverted V-shaped fabric pouch is welded to the roof and has PVC inserts for rigidity adding an attractive touch to your entryway. It also provides an attachment for a future Door Awning or Door Canopy.

Door Awning
Door Awning

Our versatile Door Awning is a 5' x 6' piece of roofing fabric welded over the door. Add your own wood or metal support and the awning becomes a covered porch for outdoor enjoyment and shelter from the weather. The awning can also serve as a transition roof to connect one yurt to another. Custom awnings in additional sizes are also available. And, like the umbrella, the awning folds up when not in use.

Door Canopy
Door Canopy

The Door Canopy provides a graceful entry to your yurt while protecting the entryway from rain. It is made of top quality vinyl fabric on a welded aluminum frame. To personalize your yurt, add custom graphics, your logo or name to the front, along with a backlight system with translucent fabric. You and your guests will enjoy the practicality and elegance of this architectural feature.

"I am pleased to see that your yurts are continuing to evolve with new options like porch awnings and water catchments. As I head into my fourth Colorado winter in my yurt, I'm still in awe of the beauty and functionality of my home."
- Brett L., Colorado

Top Cover
Top Cover

Our standard flame retardant vinyl Top Cover provides excellent durability, low maintenance and protection against the elements. This extended life structural fabric is ideally suited for extremely wet climates or where snow loads are encountered. Overhead seams are electronically bonded together instead of being machine sewn and are impervious to moisture. Rain diverter included over every door.

Solar Skylight Arc
Solar Arc

If you thrive on an abundance of natural light, the Solar Arc is the answer to your dreams. This durable, translucent vinyl roofing fabric allows diffused light to bathe the interior of your yurt. It takes advantage of natural lighting and is perfect for artists' studios and remote locations without electricity. Recommended for moderate climates. Available in the standard Top Cover only.

Premium Top Cover

This top is made of the highest quality roofing fabric available. It carries a 15-year material manufacturer's warranty. This is the same roofing material used on many new commercial buildings. Available in tan, white or gray. Not for use with the Solar Arc.

Water Catchment System
Water Catchment

You don't have to be marooned in the Sahara to understand the importance of conserving water. Our system, engineered for conserving rainwater, is a fabric gutter that collects run-off from the roof, funneling it through downspouts into a storage tank or cistern system which you supply. Available on new top only. For non-potable water use.

"I enjoy the Pacific Yurt very much with my friends and family. It is a sacred space that I really cherish. Thanks for making it possible."
- Missy G., World Cup Downhill Mountain Bike Champion, Colorado

Perimeter Gutter System
Perimeter Gutter System

This Gutter System not only collects water run-off from the roof, but also prevents it from running down the wall. This will keep the Side Cover cleaner and dryer, reducing maintenance. Similar function to Water Catchment but utilizes rigid PVC and can be retrofit. Not recommended for high snow areas.

Banner System
Banner System

If you have something to say and you want everyone to know about it our Banner System offers you a great opportunity. You can display custom graphics or logos on your yurt for commercial enterprises or to identify sponsors for special events. The removable banner laces into a grommeted frame mounted on the roof.

"The Nike Outdoor Sports Marketing department used a Pacific Yurt to create an on-site presence for World Cup Mountain Bike Races and for the Summer and Winter X Games. It offered shelter to our athletes and staff in the pouring rain, blazing sun and freezing mountain conditions. The Nike yurt was easily recognizable and well received by our consumers and athletes. It was a sweet setup!"
- Margie W., Nike Outdoor Sports Marketing, Oregon

Stove Flashing
Stove Flashing

The stove flashing is a double metal flashing that allows the stovepipe to exit through the side cover. Flashing is made from galvanized sheet metal that is powder coated for corrosion resistance and beauty. (Std. opening is 8" - other sizes available)

Snow and Wind Options

Snow and Wind Kit
Snow and Wind Kit

If the terms "snow expected to ease up next week" and "high-wind warning" are a part of your daily weather report, this Kit is an answer to your concerns. We specifically engineered it for heavy snow and high wind conditions and it has proven its strength on the Oregon Coast, in Alaska and at many ski resorts. The Kit consists of high quality, kiln-dried supports secured by our custom hardware, and a cable blocking system to add rigidity to the roof. For higher snow load requirements, see our Central Column upgrade. Stainless Steel Hardware upgrade available for harsh marine environments.

Central Column System
Central Column

This system upgrades your rafters, rafter supports, center ring and hardware and adds a steel column support. Ideal for larger yurts in high snow or wind conditions, such as at ski resorts, or where engineered high snow load capacity is required.

"Pacific Yurts work great for us here at Sundance. We have recently had two winters of the heaviest snow and wind I can remember and the yurts’ performance was bullet proof. Our guests are blown away by the aesthetics and comfort of our yurts."
- Sam P., Sundance Resort, Utah

Perimeter Blocking

Finished 8' 2x4's to be cut and installed between vertical supports to meet IBC standards. Includes screws. Available only with Snow and Wind Kit.

Cable Tiedown
Cable Tie-Down

You might own a four-wheel drive, and still carry chains. This option provides that additional level of protection in high winds. The system secures the center ring to the floor and is easily installed and removed as needed for severe wind conditions or when your yurt will be unoccupied for long periods. Designed to be used in conjunction with our Snow and Wind Kit.

Dome Options

Dome Opener
Dome Opener

It's a little like a sunroof in your car. Sometimes you've just gotta open it. Opening the dome skylight allows the escape of hot air that may get trapped at the ceiling. Creates a natural convection cooling system for refreshing comfort. For further air movement, add a ceiling fan with our Fan Support.

Tinted Dome

Highly recommended for those of you who live in the tropics or have a site in a hot location with direct sun. The Tinted Dome blocks approximately 60% of the heat that comes through the skylight, and only marginally affects the natural light. So you'll have a clear view of the heat that isn't there.

Center Ring Options

Center Ring Insert
Center Ring Insert

Our finely crafted wood frame fits into the center ring and comes with your choice of optional bug screen or shade screen. The bug screen provides a barrier against insects, and the shade screen provides a thermal barrier. Designed for easy removal.

Fan Support
Fan Support

Though it may seem so, this isn't your own little gallery of cheerleaders. This sculpted wood support allows you to use a ceiling fan in your yurt to keep things cool. Additionally, most fans can be reversed to aid heat circulation during the cold months.

Tropical Cupola
Tropical Cupola

Designed for hot tropical environments, this powder-coated steel frame has an architectural fabric cover and replaces the dome skylight. The cupola is raised 6" around the perimeter, provides shade and creates a natural cooling system by allowing maximum air flow for refreshing comfort.
