Colorado Yurt Company Featured on the Science Channel's How It's Made

Montrose, Colorado based maker of yurts, tipis, and tents, will be featured in two December episodes of How It's Made; December 6th for Tipis and December 30th for Yurts.

Montrose, CO (November 29th, 2012) Colorado Yurt Company is pleased to announce that it will be featured in two upcoming episodes of the hit television series, How It's Made.

The Science Channel's How It's Made crew visited Montrose and Ridgway, Colorado late in 2011 and filmed two segments on the company's yurt and tipi structures, detailing all aspects of the the Colorado Yurt Company's process--from design and development to employee camaraderie to pitching the structures in the shadows of 14,150 ft Mount Sneffels.

The first episode, on Tipis, will air December 6th, followed by a second episode about Yurts, on December 30th. For local listings, please visit

Dan Kigar, Co-Founder and owner of Colorado Yurt Company expressed his excitement, “As a craftsmen and product developer, it's an honor to be showcased on How It's Made. To have them come and film our company, our products and our employees--and to have so much fun in the process--was pure joy for us.”

Francois Senecal-Tremblay, Director of “How It's Made” had this to say, “I might be biased because I like the outdoors and all things related to it but filming at the Colorado Yurt Company in Montrose, Colorado was a thrill. Okay, we also filmed near Ridgway Colorado - the film location of the original True Grit movie with John Wayne, in one of his best roles, and with the magnificent San Juan Mountains in the backdrop. And the people at Colorado Yurt where so nice to us. It does not get much better than that. But, I digress. I thought I knew what a Yurt was but when I saw one fully installed and what you can do with the interior I thought this is a 5-star accommodation. I have been in way too many hotels and motels that could learn a thing or two from the incredible interior finishing you can do to a Colorardo Yurt. And I knew that maybe one day my next chalet could be a Yurt! Fast to install, relatively cheap compared to other alternatives and real nice outside and inside. 
Tipis, well they are just too cool to describe! Thank to all the folks at Colorado Yurt for an incredible 3 days of filming from the crew of How It's Made.

From the Coachella Music Festival to the highest mountain resorts, the Colorado Yurt Company handcrafts dwellings to the highest specifications. The company has recently been featured on HGTV's Design Star, Oprah's final interview (at Ralph Lauren's Ranch), and the major motion picture, Wanderlust.
