We have just ordered a 32' yurt from

Yurtz by Design

. We live in Northwestern Ontario, and plan to live in the yurt. We will be using foam

insulation

in the platform, but I am wondering if we should also install foam weather stripping between the walls and the platform to eliminate any drafts? Thanks.
