Default Almost done!

Mostly done with my yurt!! Built every piece myself, With help from

Laurel Nest Yurts

and a few friends! Laurel has been outstanding!!! His design is my favorite out of all the modern yurt styles. I'm currently working on my exterior and

insulation

, and already have ideas for my next one. This design is great, but there is always room for more efficiency. I think we all get to far away from traditional Yurts/Gerrs, and forget the point of having a Yurt. Although everyone has a different use for them!
My next one may have shorter walls, Tono sections, and a lighter ring. Message me if you want more details. How has everyone been with there double bubble

insulation

?? Does it seem to suffice? It may get down to -20 with high winds this winter for me. I would like to hear from people with similar size Yurts or Gerrs (20')

Also My images are not uploading for whatever reason!!

If it gets to -20 and stays below zero, you're gonna be waaay motivated to install ANYTHING you can get your hands on for insulation. I once carpentered outside all day long in temps like that for an entire week back in Nov 1982. The only way we survived that week was to duck inside the work tent and thaw out by the stove every hour. Incredibly nasty. I couldn't do that now.

Good luck. Find a cabinet company and ask where a large job is being installed, and go take the cardboard. Too bad you aren't here because the son and I just completed a huge cabinet job. Mind blowing amounts of cardboard.

I have one layer of reflective bubble wrap and wish I had more. However, my yurt is warm as long as I have a heat source, but as soon as the fire goes out, it is as cold inside as out. I've had many a morning waking up with ice in my beard.

*I have a 23,000 BTU heater similar to the one in the above pictures and it has no problem

heating

and keeping my yurt warm (t-shirt and sweatpants kinda warm) even when outside temps dip delow -20F. But, I never go to bed with it on and always have the door cracked about a half inch to ensure an adequate supply of fresh air. Plus the interior stays drier that way. Kerosene heaters kick out a lot of moisture!

I'm familiar with jobsite salamanders and propane heaters. They heat the place pronto. The smell can give me a killer headache though.

If you're losing all your heat quickly after the heater is turned off, you'll likely be working on your insulation detail in the future. I can't handle the cold very well anymore. Once the stove is dampered off, I just go back in our house. Cold is for young people. I used to like it. Not no mo. lol

The second one shoes my and my little cousins enthusiasm toward wall completion. I had a great idea when I started the base. I used plastic pallets!! 28 of them to be exact, they hold 2500 lbs each! It worked great hard as a rock! Thanks dennishl good to know. It may do then.. Last year I lived in a camper and it was the coldest year we have seen in a while! Only a couple months of shivering anyway! Nice Yurt btw. Bob cardboard is actually a great idea!! This is what I want.. but I do not have the funds at this time... 1000 sqft Low E Reflective Foam Core 1 4 inch Insulation Housewrap Barrier Perf | eBay

Lastly!! Any ideas on stove pipe design??
