Take a closer look and decide for yourself:The Groovyyurts platforms are insulated, transportable and easy to assemble. The SIP panel principle is based on a “sandwich” structure, made of 2 sheets of plywood with 2” (or more on request) of white Styrofoam. Panels measure a maximum of 4’x 8’ and are assembled with a tongue and grove connection. They are very easy to assemble. A big advantage to this system is that it is light and transportable, while also being very rigid. It requires only a very simple substructure. Our platform can be installed on snow or on a very flat ground, without even any substructure at all, for shorter periods of time. Otherwise, it should be installed on parallel beams, in 4’ increments. On a fairly flat surface, the beams can simply be made of 4’x4’ treated wood, levelled directly on the ground or on cement blocks. In an uneven terrain, a substructure can be assembled with 2’ x 8’ beams on a few cement pillars, blocks, or even screw piers. The platform can be delivered untreated, or weather treated on both sides.
The platform can be treated on both sides. For the bottom, we offer a water seal that protects from fungus and fights against the humidity that might build up underneath your yurt. On the top, we offer our standard dark brown stain and varnish combination to protect from everyday wear, other common stain colours available as well. N.B. : These treatments are not included in the base price of the platform.
