Back in my ren-faire days I stayed in basically a plywood shack- it was an oven during the day and the local temps weren't quite as hot as the playa, and I had some shade.
The great thing about Thermax & the other foams is that they are insulation- they're designed to keep you cooler. No fighting with your materials to try to stay comfortable.

I build a hexayurt last year not realizing any chance of rain I put a tarp underneath of it so after the rain there was a big puddle and alot of our stuff was soaked so watch out for that and also the wind almost blew the hexayurt down so try to focus on straping down more than you think you will need. Other than that it worked very nice.. It was cool inside and no wind inside, good luck
