Could You Put a Yurt on Your Rural Northern Arizona Land?

How about living in a yurt?  A Mongolian Yurt A modern version of this ancient structure (fragments found have been dated at 5000 BC) could be used as a home on your piece of rural land in Northern Arizona. 

Parcels of land between Kingman and Ash Fork along I 40 are for sale for as low as $750 an acre.

Yurts use compression and tension to form a freestanding, clear open structure.  At the top of the yurt, the hub or compression ring is under pressure from the rafters, which radiate out from it.  Could You Put a Yurt on Your Rural Northern Arizona Land? Why not, there have been several for sale in our area and i've seen used ones on Craigs List? Yurts as Cabins for Rural Land in Northern Arizona

The rafters span out and down from the ring at a thirty-degree angle, and hook onto the main cable.  The main cable is a continuous loop, preset to the exact circumference of the yurt. It is supported by the lattice wall and is enclosed by the fabric.

These yurts could provide great affordable homes. It seems like water and other utilities can come in from the platform.

Liz, you're right.  And here in Arizona you can have pole-mounted solar to provide electricity and you would be good to go.  The more I look into these possibilities the more afffordable a second home becomes especially now with the price of solar dropping all the time.
