Default Living in hard sided 30ft yurt for two years

Hi Yurters,
We've lived full time in our 30 ft hard sided yurt for two years. We built it ourselves with the help of friends with building experience. (They had never built a yurt). We were anxious since we (Hubby 77 and me 81 and two dogs) had lived in an RV for over 8yrs.

We didn't finish insulating it. Wondering about old clothes (treated) as

insulation

. Has anyone tried this?

Thank you audreylen27. We have photos of our yurt on site.

I wouldn't use clothes for

insulation

. Mice and bugs. Fiberglass batts, fiberglass rolls, foam board, bubblewrap are affordable and no critters gonna be tell their friends about the bonanza they just discovered.

Never seen rockwool in new construction around here. Some really old redos I have worked on have it layed loose in the attic, around post and tube electric systems. lol
Yurt insulation is not my bag, sorry. Maybe someone else here can help you. Good luck.

As I prepare to build my own yurt, I talked with youtuber Jared who built a wood frame yurt and he used rockwool. He said it worked well as insulation
