Praise for Yurt Grrl and Gert the Yurt

Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, host of HGTV's Tiny House Builders and "Kari Cooper- Activist, Yurt Addict, Tiny House Enthusiast, and an all around super-energetic, funkadelic, spazoid (in a great way), who always brings positivity, and helpfulness, to the job site."

John Kernohan of United Tiny House Association: "[Kari Cooper's] presentation and “Gert the All Knowing Yurt” were two of the attendee favorites at the 2016 Georgia Tiny House Festival. Wherever she is, Yurt Grrl readily and eagerly shares her experience in the world of tiny homes and the micro living community.

Kent Griswold of Tiny House Mag says, "Yurt Grrl is hardworking, generous and cool! It boggles the mind!"

From Tiny Houses and ADU's in NJ/PA, Sharon Hurley: "Kari you are a GEM and so much fun to be around! Everyone had a blast! Thank you so much for hosting this Meetup!" Mike Hess: "It was great to meet everyone!!! It was pretty awesome to put up the yurt and see one in person."
