New Zealand council consentable yurts

Tasman Canvas/Origin Tents Ltd has produced yurts or gers for well over a decade. Design detail has evolved a lot over that period and now comes with the security of qualified structural engineering and compliance with NZ building codes.

Yurts can be used for a dwelling, a sleepout, a yoga or meditation retreat, a bach, an office or a workshop.

It is amazing how quickly Yurts can be erected! You can be in comfort in your yurt in a matter of weeks! We make yurt frames ahead of time so we can deliver within a short time-frame once fabric colours, window and door placement is established.

Our standard sizes range are
6m diameter [28.27sqm],
7m diameter[38.46sqm],
8m diameter[50.26sqm] and
9m diameter[63.61sqm], however larger sizes can be organised.

Tasman Canvas/Origin Tents yurts come as a package that include all components from the ground or floor up. PVC canvas roof membrane, fully treated canvas wall outers with windows, a full frame kit including a timber door. Yurts can have more than one door and french doors are an option.

Add to this an insulation and lining package, connected to one of put a variety of floor options and you have a warm, dry, beautiful dwelling.

We can arrange all your building requirements for you, from consent plans to complete builds.
