The opening in the roof of the D27 yurt
is used by mason bees that are
 exiting the yurt and is for venting any excess
 heat during the summer months.
D27 yurt is ready for spring.
The silver colour of the tarp is on the outside.
The blue colour of the tarp faces the inside.  Two posts
protect it from severe winds.

 

A row of Highrises are attached at the roof line.  This is the  warmest position inside the D27 yurt.  Release houses with cocoons sit on top of Highrise homes.
Temperature at roof line is 85+F
Outside (N) temperature of 64F
Temperature one foot down from roof line is 76F
Temperature  2 feet down from roof line is 71F.

The increase in warmth of the D27 YURT can only be a boon to mason bee production
