Nomadness yurts was set up by myself, Jonathan Ridgeon, in 2006. I had done much research into portable dwelling structures while studying at University. The conclusion that I came to was that yurts are the ultimate in both function and design. With this in mind I started to make my first yurts out of materials I could find , tools I could borrow and with helpers I could coerse.

With the success of my initial builds under my belt, I decided it was time to upgrade a few of the processes, components and materials. This decision was made easy by the short-comings of some of the materials used oringinally. The canvas roofs had a tendancy to get covered in pollen , sap, leaves and bird poop. They were almost impossible to clean (although we now know the secret), and with this organic matter covering them they started to go mouldy. Then they started to rot…. But the yurts looked beautiful in the canvas and we wanted to maintain the look without compromising performance. So the decision was made to invest in some thermal welding gear so we could make roof covers that were totally waterproof, could be cleaned with a hose and didn’t cost a fortune. This gave the yurts the performance but not the look. This was and still is achieved by using the traditional crown star in canvas, any colour you like. The walls are able to be made from canvas with a PVC skirt to stop the mud and damp coming in. This allows the structure to breathe and make the whole package look stunning. When you consider the amount of time and thought that goes into the yurts you could be forgiven for thinking that they will cost a small fortune. However because of the streamlined processes, ingenious methods and great tools we use we are able to offer the yurts for cheaper than most of the competition. Wow!


I could rant on about how good our yurts are for days but the fact remains we are the only company in the UK to be offering hand made, durable modern yurts that will function how you want them to. It can be used day in day out for years and stand up to the job of providing temporary, semi-permanent or permanent space for whatever need you have.
