We’ve featured yurts from Mandala Homes here on Inhabitat before, and their latest creation has raised the bar to new heights. Prefabricated in B.C., Canada, Mandala Homes‘ “fancy yurts” are shipped worldwide, and this new piece in Alaska received 97.5 points on the BEES rating system, qualifying it as a 6-star home. The 2,300-square-foot yurt uses blown-in cellulose insulation in the ceiling and walls, and with triple-pane skylights, panoramic windows, non-toxic finishes and cedar siding, this building will be a diamond in the wild for generations to come. This company is dedicated to creating stunning, energy-efficient homes that are healthy for both the homeowner and the planet. + Mandala Homes + EcoSmart Homes Alaska Images via EcoSmart Homes Facebook page
