Re: Our Savannah Yurts

Been darn near a year since I posted here. Have had renters in the Yurts Since October and minus the hot summers without a shad cloth have been doing well.

I'm just waiting on some finished...

Re: Cooling BTU's

I will have to check it out. I think the fridge in most of your campers runs the same way. Uses the propane heat in the same cycle. Trust me there is plenty of it. We just generally undersized in the...

Re: Our Savannah Yurts

Jafo I should put an ad up but I don't really have a pure sale as the only way to get rid of it. We wil see. I would love to take it back to Oregon with me but I guess if the wife won't live in it...

Re: Our Savannah Yurts

Well we moved in and lived there about a week. Wife absolutely hated it so now I'm back in suburbia hell.

Re: Best Yurts for Insulation

A cross post from my build thread and I will get more scientific data in the future. The closed foam polyethylene insulation does make a big difference, at least in keeping heat out. Here are some...

Re: Our Savannah Yurts

LED lighting

Besides the outhouse is anyone else running LED lighting? Thinking about running the circumference of the top ring and bottom outline with 12v strips. Most likely off of converters until I get the...

Re: Our Savannah Yurts

Well I gave our 30 day notice last week and time is slipping away from me fast. Electrical is 95% done and plumbing is ongoing. Still have more work than I know what to do with but here is to hoping....

Re: Our Savannah Yurts

I planned on leaving the Voltage at 12V. Mainly because most of the LED lighting systems are 12V. Then I would run a small inverter in case the power ever went out. That would keep our fridge and our...

Re: Insulation

I need to stop by the local HF and pick up a cheap infrared sensor but I will let you know how my testing goes. It was 97 and 90% humidity here the other day. Probably well over 110 in the yurt and...

Re: Our Savannah Yurts

I have been swamped with work, family, and of course building the yurt. Been at it all by myself since it went up so it has been slow going.

That being said the electrician is coming by tomorrow...

Re: How thick of insulation between Lattice

I have decided there will be insulation in my yurt before next summer. It has been in the upper 90's with the heat index of 102. Given the yurt is not completely sealed up, yet it is WELL over 100 in...

Re: Defeating the Deer Fly

Re: Cooling BTU's

I found a container full of surplus woodland camouflage the other day. Cut the lock and it was probably sitting in that container since our first deployment in 2004. It is going to the dumpster or to...

Re: Cooling BTU's

I like the idea of a huge tarp over the yurts during the day. I should go to the excess equipment yard and pick up some of our camoflauge netting and rig a way that I can unroll/roll it up...

Cooling BTU's

I know most people that build yurts live in climates that require heating. I on the other hand need cooling.
