Yurt's were traditionally used by the Mongolian tribesmen as mobile, semi-permanent shelters. Yurts were purpose built to protect from wind, rain, and cold weather, they were also designed to safely contain a heat source without risking damage due to fire or carbon monoxide build up. Yurts can be assembled and disassembled in less than an hour, the only trick to building a yurt is to fabricate and milling out the pieces needed for the construction, these can be done within a weekend when using power tools, a week by hand using hand tools and a dedicated team of crafters.
