Jake and Nicole’s Story
When Jake and Nicole stopped by our facility to pick up their Pacific Yurt, they told us they wanted to develop a sustainable property centered around a yurt. They also told us they wanted to share their story about the benefits of yurt life to bring more awareness to this kind of living.
We’ve since partnered with them to document every step of their journey through a video series highlighting what it takes to assemble and live in a backcountry yurt in the wilderness of Canada. These videos show how they started their exciting adventure, each step of the build process and their experience of living successfully off-the-grid in a Pacific Yurt.
Note: We recommend consulting a builder and/or engineer to plan your site-specific platform and always follow the Set Up Manual when assembling a Pacific Yurt.
“We wanted to give you our most genuine thanks for being such a great company and creating such an incredible product! Can’t wait to continue working with you into the future!”– Jake Mace

Picking Up Our New Yurt
A yurt’s circular shape creates an energy efficient, strong and appealing living space unlike any other. Join Jake & Nicole as they start their off-the-grid adventure by picking up their new Pacific Yurt and transporting it back to British Columbia.
Preparing The Site
Jake and Nicole found the perfect location for off-the-grid yurt living among the coniferous forests of British Columbia. Watch them clear the land and prepare their site before assembling their new Pacific Yurt platform.
Planning The Platform
Yurt placement and height above the ground are major decisions that impact off-the-grid living and demands intentional planning. Learn how Jake and Nicole found the right location and the perfect height to build their Pacific Yurt in British Columbia.
Yurt Platform Begins
Watch Jake and Nicole begin construction by setting out pier blocks according to the framing plan and finalize the height of their off-the-grid Pacific Yurt in British Columbia.
The next step for Jake and Nicole is to cut and level their yurt platform’s posts and beams. Find out how they solved the challenges of setting up their yurt platform in Canada’s wild backcountry.
