Default Woodstove one side of yurt, but cold opposite site what to do

Here is my challange.
I have a 7 meter yurt and the woodstove is on one side against the wall.
It's a 8/11 kw stove Dovre 640 WD.
When im gone for a day or so the inside temp is equall to the outside temp in this time of year that's near or below freezing.
So when i have the stove running including 2 eco flow fans it takes several hours to bump up the temp in my roompart of the yurt which is opposite of the stove location and its a real challenge to bring temps up to 16 degrees.
Any tips on how to increase temp opposite of the yurt.

You need

insulation

. Uninsulated yurts (like mine) don't hold the heat at all. About like duck hunting when it's 10f, in a long sleeve shirt and a pair of jeans. Staying warm ain't gonna happen. You need insulation-- heavy clothes.

You can't expect to heat a side room if the main room won't hold the heat. If the yurt actually holds the heat-like in an insulated house for example- an adjacent room will eventually warm up a bit. To REALLY warm it up you need to duct in hot air, fan in hot air, or add a heater to that room.

A ceiling fan running in reverse does a good job at moving the air around. I just installed one in my yurt this year and am really impressed on how it balances the heat throughout the room. It pushes the hot air that collects on the ceiling, down the walls uniformly and mixes the air perfectly.

After reading your posts i started searching and indeed i learned a few things.
Yes the yurt heats up and holds it well allthough i will check with a thermometer for cold spots and fix that, but i have a loft that covers 50% of the yurt and it is divided in 3 (sitting area, hallway and kitchen and that is where the problems occur.
However the ceiling fan wasnt on my 'radar' and i will contact a comp that sells them to see what it can and cant do and yes im working on a vertical heater to warm up locally to compansate a bit.
