About Us

Nomad Shelter is comprised of a dedicated group of independent craftspeople cooperating to make the best possible yurt. Each component has its own team that works together to give each piece the care and attention it deserves. We are connected personally to every project.


We live and work in our yurts, and have been since we first moved into a yurt of our own design in 1987.

Nomad Shelter has been in operation since 1995, starting as a small family business that now ships hand-crafted yurts across the world for a staggering array of environments and uses.


We continue to oversee every phase of design and construction, and are happy to work with you individually to personalize and customize your portable dwelling. We prioritize clear and frequent communication during the building of your yurt, and wouldn't be in business for over twenty years if we didn't pay close attention to the desires of our customers!

Thank you for considering our yurts. The best part of our work is our yurt customers! Our experience is that you are caring, independent thinkers and we love working with you in creating your vision for your unique environment and needs.
