You dream about a simple and comfortable yurt you can build yourself?
DISCOVER THE FLEX470
Ultra-nomadic yurt, transport it with a simple car, including a bamboo structure, a made of blankets insulation (woolen / polyester), an anti-condensation system and an ultra resistant PVC tarpaulin
This yurt is easy to build for a budget from 200€ to 1000€ according to chosen materials (recycling or new)
Oliver at the end of his engineering studies at Arts et Métiers ParisTech, begins a 2 years worldwide travel
As soon as back in France, he builds his first yurt (June, 2014) on his own model
After 6 months living in this yurt, he sets up the fabriquersayourte.fr website to share his experience and his knowledge through construction workshops
Anne after her first workshop, joins the team of fabriquersayourte.fr
She volunteers since January, 2016 in the project’s broadcasting on Internet by managing the Facebook page and by answering your questions
HOW IS BORN THIS YURT?
The conception of the flex470 is based on 3 fundamental axes
- comfort which is comparable to that of a traditional yurt while being adapted to the oceanic climate
- ultra-nomadism of a housing environment that can be knockdown, that is storable and easy to transport, offering to its owners physical security without being an administrative, logistic or economic weight
- cost and simplicity of a type of housing feasible in a few days by everyone and at a lower cost
Materials order of preference 1 - Natural materials / 2 - Recycling materials / 3 – Basic materials (thread, nails, screw)
This shelter is as easy to set up as a tente and as comfortable as a long-lasting housing
THE CONSTRUCTION GUIDE
Since June, 2014, Oliver realized 7 copies of the flex470 and organized 5 workshops
Today he invites you to support him to realize a construction video guide who will drive you day after day in the building it yourself
Key moments overview of the flex470’s realization
J-0 Harvesting and processing bamboos
J-1 Assembly technique of bamboo netting for the structure
J-2 Assembly technique of the wall and the roof
J-3 Use of the cutting pattern for the PVC tarpaulin and advices to limit the waste
J-4 Heat-sealing or chemical sealing , how to choose?
J-5 Cut and assembly of blankets for the internal insulation
J-6 Advices to assure an ideal tension to the blankets
J-7 Realization technique of the removable "crystal" dome and the door
This guide will be available from June, 2016 and will include a detailed technical documentation in PDF as well as a video which will guide you step by step
In addition, you will get access to the flex470 forum moderated by Oliver, who will answer your several questions about the yurt construction
An online directory will allow exchanges of experiences and knowledges between the flex470 builders
HOW ARE WE DOING?
Oliver has all plans and personal writing down necessary for the construction of the yurt and his floor We already filmed all videos for the construction guide (7 hours of video rush)
Today we have to digitize, put in words and clarify the technical documentation, then editing video and add explanations
By helping us to finance this work of editing, you confirm the viability of our project and allow its broadcasting
In return get a 30 % discount on the CONSTRUCTION GUIDE
(180€ instead of 250€)
Exclusivity reserved to the first 10 KissBankers
Technical documentation of the FLOOR INCLUDED
All these documents will be stored on an USB key which you will receive at your home
