Three authentic Mongolian yurts were purchased by Pinecrest owners Frank and Kathleen from a Hollywood production company who had intended to use them in a film. The Yurts will eventually be positioned in a cluster on a hillside overlooking the pool, with any luck. Two of the Yurts are smaller in dimension (perhaps 16' in diameter) and the third is quite large (perhaps 32' in diameter).
The large yurt was erected by Pinecrest members and friends on a sunny then cold day in January 2010 in the parking lot by to pool. This effort took all day, and by sundown all the participants were able to celebrate in the glory of a beautiful structure that did not exist 8 hours earlier.
