I'm curious about dirt floors and how they hold up and hold heat in a cold climate.

1)  If there is good heat in a room that has a hardwood floor built over hard-packed soil, but is not insulated, will the floor be like ice in a northern winter like it is for a cement floor?  The heat is coming through the ducts in the ceilling of the room.  

I'm curious as to whether such a space could be used for movement classes with bare feet or lying on the floor in the winter.  I'm also curious in a similar vein, if a yurt were on a raised floor over packed earth rather than on a platform.  

2)  Are there any issues that I should be aware of?  It seems to be mold free and dry, but I'm not sure about insect/bug issues, etc.

Please share if you are experienced with this type of floor.
Thank you!
