The Pacific Yurt is most often installed by the owners themselves, but some prefer to hire a contractor or carpenter to install the yurt. We provide a step-by-step Set Up Manual and provide a toll free number (in the United States only) so we can answer any installation questions. The time spent to install a Pacific Yurt will vary depending on your site, local conditions, number of people, and which features the yurt has. Most times a smaller yurt is set up in a few hours, while a large yurt may take a weekend to install. It is best not to set a time limit for yourself and just follow the Set Up instructions provided.
