Yurts and Barrels Could be the Next Thing in Modular Tiny Houses

Among the new exhibitors at this year's IBS 2015 in Vegas was Dave Byers, owner of Barrel Enterprises Inc. near Sussex in New Brunswick, Canada. His company makes homes, yurts and saunas out of Canadian lumber. The catch: all of his structures are round. “Round is the new square,” Mr. Byers said on the IBS trade show floor near a display of his company’s tubular sauna, which sells for $8,500 to $15,000. 

“Everything I do is round because not a lot of people are doing it.”
