The yurt compound of William Coperthwaite on the Blue Hill Peninsula of Maine

No one alive has done more to promote yurts than Bill Coperthwaite. Coming across the style in a 1962 National Geographic article, he recognized in the yurt a construction method so simple and durable, that almost anyone, regardless of skill or budget, could build their own home. He’s spent the last 4 decades living off-grid, lecturing, selling plans, and leading hundreds of yurt building workshops around the globe.

Read more on Bill’s life and philosophy in his book: A Handmade Life.
