I live in my yurt in Oxford. I've got sheep felt for

insulation

and a Windy Smithy Louis Ranger. It gets too hot sometimes. Lots of thick rugs or carpet on the floor is a good idea too. This winter isn't cold though! Unless you're in Scotland perhaps. Last year was.

For the water problem you just need to stick Fabsil on the canvas at least once a year, especially on the side that gets most sun as the UV wears it away. 22 for 5 litres from ebay, 2 of those cans does it. I just got the can and poured it on and it stopped most of the water. Use a caulking gun around the edges and stitches. Ground sheet, stick some rocks under the stitching for the ground sheet. Decking with ridges on on to take away the water.

Nothing will completely stop these Atlantic storms though!
