I get asked daily, “How do I put in a kitchen or a bath in my yurt?” It is really a matter of preference, just like designing a stick-frame house. Usually our yurt customers hire a contractor to work with. It is not however necessary if you are of the Handy-Andy mold. In any case, I encourage you to follow all local codes and requirements.
The most common configuration is to have a shared wall project from the edge of the yurt to the center, causing a natural divide; with a kitchen on one side and the bathroom on the other. This is done by pulling the plumbing and electrical up through the floor and utilizing the shared wall. Often times this creates the ideal (depending on yurt size) space for a loft over this area.
Ikea also is a great source for modular kitchen components. That is what we have here in our Yurt Village Showroom in Seattle. Check out their freestanding kitchens section for some great inspiration like this...
Enjoy the journey!
