Smile Ceiling Fan Dimensions

Hi all:

Question for those with ceiling fans in your yurt: could you share your specs?

I'm building a 35-foot diameter yurt (from Smiling Woods), with 10-foot walls, and an overall height of 20 feet to the skylight

dome

.

Given the big-ness of all these dimensions, I'm trying to get a sense of the most effective ceiling fan setup for the space, in terms of 1) fan size; 2) optimal height from the floor (I know standard is 8-9 feet, but is 10-11 better, given the size of my space?); and 3) position of the fan in relation to the skylight & the exterior wall (ie, should I position it exactly halfway down the ceiling from these 2 points?, or a bit further up or down the ceiling)?

(I'm in the Catskills, NY, and I'll be

heating

with a mini-split and a Blaze King Sirocco 20 catalytic wood stove, if that's helpful to know.)

Would love to know details (and photos!) re: folks'
1) fan dimensions
2) height from floor
and
3) position in relation to skylight/exterior wall.

Thank you all in advance!--this forum has been indispensable throughout my yurt journey!

- Dave

We have a ceiling fan in the vault of our bedroom. I installed it in the middle of the room. Works fine. Lots of the houses I worked on had ceiling fans in the great room, and occasionally the master bedroom. Typically they were in alignment with architectural feature like a fireplace stack or roof beams, or just centered in the room.

In a yurt with partitions I'd keep the fan more towards the open area if possible. Also you want a fan that has adjustable speed and a reversible flow so air can be pulled up as well as pushed down. They might all feature that now, beats me.

Good luck.

Also, I suggest you anchor that fan on a base that is as solid as you can make it. The fans at work were frequently mounted on the bottom of a box ridge beam I built in the great room. I fully blocked the interior of the beam at the fan location so that they wouldn't wobble in use. A large fan in the size you are wanting to install might be prone to wobbling if it's a bit out of balance. Just sayin'.
