Yurt Gurl.
Great info. I posted about my Smiley Yurt in the message above yours, and would say your experiences were similar to mine. I had a neighbor who had a nice crane that we used to hold the ring up at the top, and hired an engineer to review the installation of the

tension cable

...

We went for the pine tongue and groove ceiling and are in Arizona. We had shrinkage so there are alot of gaps between the panels. That is my biggest complaint. It would have been better to set the panels somewhere to acclimate before installing, but this is new construction so there was no place to do so. We also spray faom insulated everything which while costly, really does work nicely.

Sounds like similar experiences - and I think if you are willing to do the work, smiley is a good option.

Thanks HawaiiYurts and 1daveman! And yes, I agree. It's so much work, but worth it in the end

Yeah, I think they could come up with a better ceiling option, I'm just not sure what it would be. I had the panels inside for a while and also polyed them all before install and they are still popping and warping.

Just curious...have you had any condensation issues from the skylight? I know Arizona is a dry climate...But just curious?

No - we dont have any condensation, but AZ has been quite dry so who knows!
