Watch as Mongolian nomads put up the ger in this time-lapsed video:

According to Grossman's description on YouTube, the ger -- the Russian version of which is called a Yurt -- was moved by the family to Lake Hovsgol near the Russian border in Mongolia. The whole process takes the family a little more than an hour, but Grossman brings it to you in just over two minutes in his film "The Nomad's Ger: Mongolia's Instant House".
