Yurt Studio with pefect acoustics?

Hey, I've been looking at people living in Yurts (mongolian tent-houses) on youtube (example. YouTube) for a while and was thinking that the acoustics in there must be really good. All the walls are made out of insulating felt and there from my knowledge of acoustics there should be no need for bass trapping or resonators since all the sound is escaping from the structure. Whats your thoughts on this?

I've never had a chance to measure one, but I've been in a few and subjectively they do have very nice acoustics...for full range playback I think it would be better if it was on an insulated slab.

That all said, you obviously won't ever get great isolation, but some of the ones I've been in have the more modern insulation packages and are really pretty quiet inside if your location is already quiet.

Cool, I'd love to get inside one and test the sound myself before taking the leap and building one Yeah i saw one built on hay bales, using that and plywood floor with a carpet I think you could get good isolation downwards. But as you say it'd have to be in a pretty quiet area.

I wouldn't worry too much about downward isolation, so much as resonances. If you did a deck on haybales maybe consider a plywood, few layers of sheetrock or concrete board, and plywood again sandwich.
