This is a short video of a multi-facted experiment that we're conducting. First, it's a experiment in using modern materials to quickly and affordably construct a tradtional shelter structure -- in this case, a yurt. The design is great for cold environments with a significant snowfall; in other words, places you'd really want to have shelter.

Our second objective is to have an environmental enclosure that would give us a known volume of heated space with a known insulated R-value and known ventilation. After all, what is research without greater knowledge at the end? We are going to continue the experiment with scale-size renewable heat devices; we're considering a solar thermal option as well as an increased solar PV option.

That's why we experiment!
