Living in paradise can be expensive. Not anymore.

Consider a yurt. They’re not just for camping anymore. These funky, ready-to-pop domiciles are gaining mainstream appeal and are riding the housing market’s newest wave of living “green.”

These yurts can be luxurious, too … they can include amenities like kitchens and baths.

HGTV/DIY Networks newest hit series, “Love Yurts,” is now seeking couples, families and singles (with sidekicks) already living in Hawaii who dream of owning a tricked-out yurt but just need the right builder to make their dream come true.

The candidates will be introduced to the highly skilled Love Yurts build team to design and construct a 100 percent customized yurt that is as unique as its owner.

Interested candidates must already have a construction budget and property to build on within the Hawaiian Islands, to be considered. Filming is set to begin this summer.

To apply, email loveyurts.casting@dorseytv.com. Include your name, desired yurt location, budget range, full contact information (phone and email), recent photos of yourselves and a brief bio on why you are interested in owning a custom yurt.
