Yurt is easily transported, assembled and disassembled. The entire operation of disassembling it takes an hour, but in the assembling - maximum two hours. Such efficiency during assembling and disassembling is achieved by the fact that all parts of the yurt of any size has a characteristic modular system it worked out and tested by life itself for centuries. The skeleton is made up of walls interconnected folding wooden trellis "KHAN" which determine the size and capacity of the dwelling. Each grid, part of the common wall, consists of flat strips, overlapping oblique cell and fastened with rawhide thongs. Due to the fact that these rails are compressed or stretched like an accordion, it is possible to reduce or increase to the desired height or folded its tent during migrations.
