Low Cost Housing/Facility Structures... Yurts

If a traditional retreat facility cannot be located, a beautiful, yet affordable approach might be to have "yurts." A yurt is a semi-permanent tent that is guaranteed to withstand the elements for over 15 years. They come in many different sizes and offer protection and warmth even in the snow!
