Check out this quick bit of behind-the-scenes footage from the production of an episode of "How It's Made" focusing on the Colorado Yurt Company's Earthworks Tipi. I'm a huge fan of both "How It's Made" and the Colorado Yurt Company and have been a proud Earthworks tipi owner for the past four years. I put their tipis to the test a few years ago when I lived through a Maine winter in their 26-foot model. It held up up beautifully and, with the help of a good wood stove, kept me warm and toasty throughout cold nights, blasting winds and even a blizzard or two.

 

 

The episode hasn't run yet, and I'll make sure to share the link as soon as it does. In the meantime, you can click over to a post I wrote in 2010 with a video that Colorado Yurt made to show the process of bringing a tipi to life.

 

Congrats to the hardworking crew at Colorado Yurt for their continued success!
