I'm curious if you used the paper wrap? Something like Tyvek? I seem to recall that being recommended by

Groovy Yurts

when we documented an install by them.

Yes, we did. We have two layers (1") of felt, house wrap, then untreated canvas. I don't think the vapour is getting to the house wrap before condensing and freezing. I actually wonder if we'd have less trouble if we only used one layer of felt, but then we'd be using more firewood. Life is loaded with compromises.

For insight on living in a yurt in Mongolia there is a very interesting book on Amazon titled Hearing Birds Fly by Louisa Waugh, she is an English teacher who lived several years in Mongolia, with families. One year in Yurts.

It gives a good frame of reference.
