So we made it! 24 ft yurt, three healthy men and we stopped when the first water protecting layer was on.
On the following morning we placed a UV protecting layer and the outside canopy. Now moving on to finishing jobs & bed building, my third son is due to be born begin july.


Now I know from experience how rapid yurts can be raised, this was our first time and we countered a couple of manufacturing mistakes so normally with 3 people you can get it done easily within 8-10 hours.

This picture is not our Yurt, but here you can see the last two layers before the outside canopy.........can anyone tell me more about the qualities of these layers? Especially the black one?

I tried a google search, it's used in roofing I guess, the name is "Esterre 60 - HPV".......the seller brands it as breathable, non-permeable cover.......do you guys have something similiar?

The white one is sold as UV protecting, I guess to protect the mentioned black cover

Making good progress. Get some stairs built and walk right in. Beats me what that '60' stuff is.

Im a little bit confused on your layer system - can you explain it more detailed and describe the used material of each layer?

Yeah sure. Ok so I bought the yurt from a spanish company so I have to translate some words:
First layer Cotton inner fabric
Second layer 3cm felt

Third layer Esterre 60 - HPV (the black stuff). On the order it's called "membrana extra impermeable y transpirable" which translates as "extra waterproof and breathable membrane."
Fourth layer A plasticy looking white fabric which is called "membrana impermeable anti-uva" on the invoice, I thought uva was either a typo or meant as much as anti UV
Fifth layer is a thick outside canopy

Wondering if the 3rd & 4rd layer is commonly used......What is a actually a common layer structure? Inner fabric, felt and outer canopy and more???

Mongolian trad yurts the layers are white liner, then felt, then cover. The first layer keeps the interior bright, and probably clean. My guess is felt picks up all manner of litter when off the yurtwhile being moved. Just a guess.

Mmmmh - why is an "extra waterproof" layer needed, below other (4th & 5th....) layers?

Exactly that was/is confusing me on your layer regime.....

"Common" is depending on location and time (summer/winter) of usage.

Insulation

can help to keep the Yurt warm, but with the right material (e.g. aluminum reflectors....) you can keep the summer heat outside too.

Yes - change "felt" to "insulation" and I can agree....
