Updated pics of the ceiling in, also put in 5 Ton Heatpump and 15KW heat. I love my building, we are in the process of putting an addition on the side 12x60. That is one nice feature with it bieng stick built you can always add on easy.

Excursion,that's a nice looking shop...I love the metal ceiling(inner liner)...makes it much brighter. Back to the topic-resale value is better with the stick built.

Put paddle fans in and let them run 24/7. Best and cheapest way to keep moisture in check.

Thanks Carrboy, it is super bright now inside. The fans do a good job. I forgot that mine never had moisture on the walls or ceiling, i do have a layer of insulation. The floor did get a little damp on day when it rainrd all day and the temp changed. has not did it since.

After too much research and pining, I think I am going toward the Pole Barn option by National Barn.

I did find these folks: http://www.we-intl.com/rfoil.html
who offer the Reflective Foil Bubble insulation. The quote that they gave me for 5 rolls included free shipping.

Rob, OSD, thanks for the call.

I'm fixing to build one, but my dads builds a lot of comercial, in my opinion nothing but steel... of course most of my family's houses are steel structure... we lived out in the country and to please the neighbors my dad built a 40x60 that looked like pole barn out of steel. wiht the steel you can get beams in the cieling with trolleys on them for cranes/lifting.. and as far as extra doors just make sure you span enough and the whole thing can be opened.

Is it better to pour the slab before you build a pole barn or does it not matter?

pour it after, then you can use the poles as lines for the form, then reinforce..works perfectly.
