Ohana Yurts owners Nathan and Jennifer Toler started building yurts in 2010 while managing Positive Energetics Foundation
The Foundation had a dream to build an eco-village on the island however as there were no Hawai’i based manufacturers at the time, the yurts had to be sourced from the mainland making the process incredibly expensive and too slow to be productive. It was during this process that the idea for Ohana Yurts was born. We originally started as BackYard Yurts but soon realized that is was lots of our Ohana that were buying the yurts to live in, so the name was changed to Ohana Yurts..
With Nathan and Jennifer producing two 12 feet yurts for the foundation on the island, they recognized a need to have this vital product created locally and have continued since that day to save time and money by producing yurts for the island’s locals.
Over the years, Ohana Yurts has grown to become the premier yurt manufacturer in Hawai’i and a globally recognized business within the industry.
Ohana Yurts have been featured on HGTV Tiny House Big Living Season 2 and also on HGTV’s DIY channel on ‘Love Yurts’. The business continues to grow and enjoy much success however the core focus remains to be a positive influence on the environment and focus on providing the best possible materials and design for the ancient yurt and continuing to share the positive effects of the yurt for generations to come.
