Default Interior wall materials if exterior is vinyl

Hi,

My exterior walls are billboard vinyls, and I am looking at polycotton or acrylic-coated polyester for the interior walls. I will have to use foil bubble wrap for the

insulation

.
Any thoughts on best interior wall material? Iím concerned about condensation and mildew, thus breathability.
Iíll be living in it full-time, wood heat, no indoor bath/shower etc.

Thanks.

Being concerned with mold and mildew is thinking ahead, and that is wise to do. Unfortunately I can't help you with details on your design. If organic materials can't breathe and/or really dry out, they are likely gonna mold in a warm humid environment. Wish I could give some practical advice on this or direct you to a thread that covers this, but that's really out of my field. Good luck.

Good thinking ahead about the mildey and stuff, but I would put in a indoor bathroom, as far as

moisture

inside the yurt get a dehumidifer, and the water you collect is good water so do not throw it away, but I am sorry to say the materail you are using is going to not breath, wool like the mongolian use is fantastic , but do not disappear take your cover off make some water and colorox, bleach and mop it down let it dry in the sun and do the same for your

insulation

and put it back on your will be fine and when your cover is off and insulation put bug screen on your frame works great good luck
