by Adam and Autumn Raven (Née Birt)

YearinaYurt 400Independent Authors International member Autumn Birt and her husband, Adam Raven, have released a nonfiction title, A Year in a Yurt. 

"Many people have asked why we did this. Why would my husband and I sell our home, car, ATV, snowmobile, furniture, why donate over 90% of our belongings and move into a yurt, in Maine no less? You might be surprised, because the reasons were really not all that unique: debt, unhappiness, and lack of fulfillment with where we found ourselves in life. What was unique was our solution.

"Join us as we strive to achieve our dream of becoming debt free by drastically altering our lifestyle and building a low cost, DIY yurt. A Year in a Yurt follows us as beginners while we tackle our first year from construction through a snowy Maine winter in our tiny house while we battle insects, heat, cold, and occasionally each other in a search for freedom through living in an alternative, solar home. Learn from our decisions made to solve a multitude of problems from solar installation, types of toilets, what to cook on, how to plumb an indoor shower, and more as we strive not just to survive but to be prosperous and self sufficient in our new homesteading lives.

"This book is full of photos with more available on line to better illustrate what life is like in less than 500 square feet of space and living in a cloth sided yurt!"
