Karl,

The next time my wife and I are coming up from N.J. I will give you a shout.


Thanks for the info on the stove because I am looking for a used one now. Would also really like to see what you did with the

insulation

.

We wrapped the interior in 4 mil plastic this helped a little, but it's still cold. So I ordered 23 48"x75" denim hot water heater blankets which I will put up around the walls. Next year we will order more

insulation

also denim and do the roof. Today I am hunting down air leaks in the platform with a caulking gun. There is a gap around the bend board that is letting a lot of draft into the yurt. We bought the full insulation package, make sure you get extra insulation though before you put everything else into the yurt. Next year I also will get storm doors. The doors that come with the yurt are nice but they are very cold to the touch.

Did you put weatherstripping between the sidewall and the platform skirt?

Karl,

If you are around this coming weekend i would love to come visit you and see your yurt.
No pressure I just have 4 days off, need to finish stacking a cord of wood on friday and then I am free for the weekend.

Would love to see what you have done and share yurt living experiences

How was your winter in the yurt?
This was a cold winter
I would love to visit some time, I am going to be building a permanent yurt home starting this spring and very excited to have well insulated walls

Hi Corina,

Winter went okay, we had a few rough days. Gone through four cords of wood so far. Next winter will be better. I sent you a email with my phone number so we can arrange a visit to each others places.
