Yurting in Alaska
Are yurts warm in winter? You decide after visiting a website, Round Things, by a young woman, Karis Koett, who is a school teacher in Alaska and lives in a yurt! Karis' yurt is in KOYUK, AK!!
Wikipeda tells me that "As of the census of 2000, there were 297 people, 80 households, and 59 families residing in the city. The population density was 62.7 people per square mile (24.2/km²). There were 95 housing units at an average density of 20.1/sq mi (7.7/km²)."
There is a story here and you are just going to have read Karis' blog to learn about it.
