Re-erected my yurt atop the new platform today. Penciled the yurt outside diameter line onto the deck. Khana anchored to line on deck with hand made 90 degree angles that bolt through the lowest lattice cross and into the platform with screws. Solid and perfectly round. I'll have my son help move the woodstove back up into the yurt, since my back is killin me.

Now gotta build a couple double sleeping bunks and big table for the grandkids to 'camp out'. And papa and grandma too.

hey y'all. My friend is a carpenter and helped me design a 20 ft. deck/ saved me a good bit of money by reducing the number of cross beams/ concrete piers needed. two osb bands around the edge/ advantech as the only floor (floor paint does wonders)/ eventually foam board

insulation

will be installed underneath. The square boxes you see in the corner are insulated to hold food and can be accessed through "secret compartments" in the floor

Initially I went to my friend with the free plans from pacific yurts/ while they are good plans this seemed to drastically shave off the materials cost and is extremely solid.

Beautiful platform!
I am deciding between conventional platform like yours or a Structural Integrated Panel floor (4" thick insulated plywood "boxes" with R16 rating) assembled directly on top of a post and beam style base. Any comments from you would be very helpful. {The SIP panels will cost about $6000}. I live in moderate climate with occasional snow rarely up to 12" deep. I need to commit to materials soon.

IMO $6000 is alot of money for a yurt floor. With that $ amount in mind, I'd stay with conventional framing on top of the post and beam. Convenional floor framing is used everywhere because it is relatively inexpensive. Fast and easy to frame. Every journeyman carpenter knows how to frame a floor. As for

insulation

, I'd install conventional fiberglass batts for the same reasons. But this is JMO.
