Best way to attach the

I used recycled billboard for two yurts I built. I was able to get it in 14'x48' sections and that was perfect for my 16' yurt. There's an advertisement on it still so I just folded it in half so it was 7'x48' with the white back of the billboard facing out. Then I just sandwiched the insulation between the billboard when I folded it. It worked really well and the billboard stuff holds up pretty well - it's super cheap, too. The only problem is it has more of a tent look to it...

Staying within your budget is VERY smart, especially in these flaky economic times. Good use of billboard material. You can always paint it white or whatever. Those that think, and try hard to get by within their means always get my vote of confidence.

Hi heveryone!! I am also looking to build a yurt/ger. I have friends who are Mongolian and was attempting to ship a few over.. but then I became interested in building one! I would really like a 19' foot yurt as I will be living in one year round and plan to have it for a while! Im in upstate new York so this yurt will need to survive all weather. How do you guys like the 16' for living year round(with other people once in a while). I am on a budget and I may be moving it every other year. I have found many plans for 16' yurts/gerrs but no 19'... Does anyone have a simple plan for a 19'?? thanks for all your help.
