Insulation

(styrofoam) between the 2x4's?

Can't you just attach 1/4 plywood parimeter to the 2x4's with some longer screws?

If sure if I lived there full time I'd insulate the floor with 2" foam board from Depot, Lowes local hardware, or wherever your

insulation

board of choice could be bought for the lowest cost. My floor is uninsulated and lemme tell yuh if I lived in there it WOULD be. As for perimeter plywood that's the standard procedure to keep the yurt on the platform, and for wall covering anchorage.

I used to insulate insulated trailer skirts in nw Wyoming. That made a !!HUGE!! difference in the floor staying warm and keeping the plumbing from freezing when it got seriously cold.

Chris,


Yes and yes. We were just trying to sort out how it would work on some of the points at the ends of the center board. But we sorted it out with some perpendicular supports coming off the main joists.
