If you go to houseneeds.com you can find the Myson CV21 series. 8" tall and 32" long. 2000 BTU each for $100. You just daisy chain them together around the wall until you get the BTU output you need.

Couple of questions: What region do you live in, ie; what kind of weather do you experience?

Are you off grid?

Are you planning on living in the yurt full time?

Are you going to have a bathroom and kitchen in the Yurt?

I can help you through some of the calcs if you decide to go radiant. But if so I'll need to know things like:
- what power sources are available to you and what do you prefer to use?
- are you trying to do electric or circulated hot fluid?
- how cold will it get outside and how warm do you want to be inside?
- is your yurt going to be insulated? with what?

Regardless if you're doing a slab, you'll want to insulate under the slab really well. If your 30' yurt has 7'-ish walls and an eco-foil like


, you'll want at least R22 worth of foam board below your slab to keep heat loss to the ground to less than 5%
