Teepees (tipis) as Alternative Rural Cabins in Northern Arizona

Teepee Structure for Rural Homes in Northern ArizonaHow about living in a teepee?  Have you ever dreamed of living in a teepee as an alternative rural cabin in Northern Arizona

It can be done; I’ve seen teepees in harsh North Dakota winters so our mild eight weeks of winter would be easy.  Modern teepees of all sizes and prices are now available.

The basic elements of a teepee are cover, liner, ozan (an interior drop ceiling), and poles.  The poles form the framework that supports the cover and Tipi as a cabin on your own rural landprovides a lattice from which the liner and ozan are hung.  The teepee liner hangs against the inside of the poles and seals the bottom. The liner makes a double wall and creates a chimney effect. Arizona land over 10 acres which would be great for a teepee.

Could You Live in a Teepee in Northern Arizona?  Why Not?  A teepee may be heated with an open fire or a wood stove.  In hot weather, the smoke flaps are left open and the bottom of the teepee cover is rolled up (either all the way around or just on one side). Even the most gentle breeze creates a nice cooling effect. Teepees as alternative rural cabins in Norrthern Arizona are worth looking into.
