Renewable Energy Homestead 005

Lettero lives in a modified yurt, a small circular dwelling traditional to Mongolian nomadic culture. Built for Penn State by master yurt builder and Maine homesteader Bill Coperthwaite, the Center for Sustainability’s yurt is insulated with polyicynene foam to decrease heat loss. Though the angled wooden walls have no windows, a skylight in the roof cone lets in light.
