Yes I plan on having blown in insulation on top of the foil board. I only run the heat when I'm out working it seems to warm up nice without a lot of draft but I'm sure the blown in will help with the gas bill.

From my experience and talking to others it's all about the floor and ceiling barrier to stop the condensation.

I know the place your probably thinking of out of the bay a couple miles past the drive-in?

and yea guys, my bad, I didn't realize we were talking strictly insulated buildings.

mine needs a coat of paint any ideas? spray it w/one of the new latex paints for steel/masonry?

the paint has weathered off as I am on top of a plateau and thats the original 1970 paint on that steel! Whats left is for the most part adhered, so I think with a good powerwash to get what little is lifting/flaky I'll be good to go. The steel itself is in EXCELLENT shape no rust at all on the sheeting

what paint?
what method?

Brian,

I have a 30 X 40 pole barn with 1.5" foam isulation with foil on the walls. I have foil insulation for a ceiling. The foil added a ton of light.

I put the boat trailer away wet most of the time since the barn is 100 yards from the ramp. Even drying it off, there is still the trailer bunks and general mositure. After I installed the insulation it started getting musty in the barn.

I took a server cabinet fan, bought a humidistat and louvers from Granger. I installed the fan in the wall near the area where the most water dripped off the trailer. Moist air is heavy so I mounted the fan close to the floor. This took care of the moisture problem. I do run a ceiling fan 24X7 and keep the temp at 40 in the winter.

Default Steel or wood?

I work on boats, so I am no expert on buildings. No matter what you do look at the resale value. A buyer would rather see it finished. They would not want to come in and have to finish the job.

Heated floors, double tin or block/concrete at least 8 ft up so you can wash the walls after those large sanding jobs. big door, anything that travels down the road should fit in the door with additional room on top after the vessel is in. Hate to see a fan take someone out.

With steel you can install a inexpensive hoist. With wood you need to buy an expensive gantre crane. I guess it is the eye of the beholder. Just my 2 cents.

Galvalume is a mixture of zinc and alumium. It has no insulation value. It a coating over the panel.
