The big deck came a year after the yurt, but the “yurtdeck” was always part of the master plan. We didn’t have time to build before we moved in last June, so we got cracking just as soon as we could earlier this spring.
By the numbers:
- 52′ x 26′ (combination helipad and airstrip)
- 2,760 pounds of Sakrete (mixed by hand)
- 2,080 deck screws (driven with solar-charged power tools)
- 3 gallons of Sikkens (3 more to go)
- 15 trips to Home Depot (120 miles round-trip)
- $4,552.32 *A supplement to our initial reporting of off-grid finance (not including stairs, railing, other mods).
3 in 1 Inflatable Solar Light
Pocket-sized lantern, flashlight and emergency light all-in-one, needing only sunlight to stay charged
