The Quick Cabins are fabricated by a company called Quite Lite.

Each panel costs about $200, and you can design your own tiny house, so the cost of this yurt depends on how large you want to build your tiny house design.

This type of unit could also be great for temporary housing while building another house, you may not want to stay in it in colder weather though, but it should be fine for temperate climates. The panels are molded from polyethylene, which is highly resistant to puncturing and it's also UV resistant. It's strong but also flexible which allows the panels to fit together easily and stay together to create a strong structure. The panels are also filled with foam to add strength and some insulation.
When assembled, the panels are connected at the top, at the middle, and at the bottom using interlocking tabs and screws to secure them even more. There is also a water tight edge gasket which creates a seal between the panels. There are also sturdy tie down rings on the inside and outside and inserts on the interior walls to install furniture. They are also really easy to dismantle too which makes the structures easy to transport or store when not in use.
The dimensions of each panel is 60 inches by 21 inches by 2-3 inches and they each weigh about 21 pounds. The door frame is made out of aluminum tubing and supports a lightweight door. The windows are a shatter proof acrylic and some of them also open and have screens in them. The roof is made from aluminum as well and it's covered in heavy duty vinyl on the exterior with an insulation layer and an inner membrane. The exterior cover attaches to the hooks on the outside of the cabin with strong cords to prevent it from flying off.
For venting and air circulation there is a 14 inch RV ceiling vent, included in the shelter kit which can be installed from the inside after the roof is assembled. There are two options to choose from when ordering one of these cool cabins, first is the Quick Cabin which is a 10 foot by 10 foot model that comes with everything you need to build the cabin. If you ever find you need more space, there are extension kits that can be added to the Quick Cabin too.
