The off-grid yurt compound of William Coperthwaite on the Blue Hill Peninsula of Maine.
Perhaps 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 lecturing, selling plans, and leading hundreds of building workshops all over the globe.
