Rainier Yurts is now Rainier Outdoor. Ready for Adventure!
E Is For Eagle


Rainier has been in business for almost 120 years, but we've only been blogging about our yurts for the last three! In those three years, we've compiled a huge amount of information about yurts on this blog. Still, we get questions daily that would make for great blog posts but we haven't written (yet).

We've been putting together our first e-book to create an even greater resource for you yurt enthusiasts out there. It's an A to Z glossary of yurt terms and information that will be helpful as you plan for your yurt purchase.

Here's an excerpt from the glossary, which you can find here. It's the letter E, which stands for Eagle, and also "excellent," which our Eagle model yurt definitely is!



Rainier’s premium yurt model with nearly limitless options to upgrade and customize your yurt. The Eagle comes standard with the following features:

  • Wall Height: Standard at 7’-4”
  • Door: Standard in the Eagle is a 36” x 80” wood door in a wood frame with a full-light window several upgrades and options are available.
  • ADA Accessibility
  • Walls: two color, interchangeable wall panels are easily rearranged or replaced.

Eagle Blocks

A Rainier exclusive! These horizontal, hourglass shaped wood pieces fit between the yurt’s rafters to add support and increase the snow load.

Energy Codes

Energy Codes were developed to use energy efficiently – and particularly to preserve our nonrenewable resources. Yurt insulation requirements are contained in an additional book called the International Energy Conservation Code.

Engineered Drawings

Engineering drawing uses an extensive set of conventions to convey information very precisely, with information including size, shape, and location and also dimensions and tolerances for each yurt.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Enjoy the journey!
