The Ger Goes Into Space: Yurt Workshop Reaches For the Stars
 
Yurts In Space - commissioned yurt for Harewood HouseWe have been honoured with a commission for a custom built "Special" ger for Yorkshire’s first planetarium, based at Harewood House near Leeds. 
 
Project Director, Richard Everiss, visited the workshop this week to meet Rob and the Yurt Workshop staff. He spent two days with us while we finished covering the ger.
 
Richard’s specifications included three 2m doors, extra high walls and a silver finish on the outer cover. He also commissioned a painted crown that would emphasise the space theme. 
 
The chance to construct a "special" is something we welcome and 3 months down the line the hard work is paying off and the ger is shaping up.
 
Richard wrote the following, "The Ger itself is simply a thing of understated beauty. Adapted to meet my requirements it could have been a disaster but the care and attention which has been lavished on it during its construction is evident. Rather like finding a smooth pebble on a beach, so Robert and his wife Ratna have handcrafted a building that is wonderful to touch and feels naturally balanced. "
 
Later next week the "The Space Ger" will be taken to Leeds and pitched inside one of the enormous geodesic domes where it will be used as a chill-out area and classroom.

Colour Me Beautiful


As you can see from the photo (right), I love colours and the richness they can create in our lives.

For some time we have offered sand canvas, and it has proved extremely popular.  It blends with most gardens, it is less stark and intrusive than white, and over the years I have come to appreciate and prefer it.
