What’s a gertee?

According to Niki Raapana, a guest blogger on the Tiny House Blog, “Gertees are basically standard yurts made from raw or salvaged materials. Unlike Mongolian and Western versions (exquisitely crafted and covered in gorgeous fabrics), gertee is the budget variety. It utilizes many items that would otherwise go to the dump.”
