Thanks to everyone for their advice/help with regard to the questions I have about my upcoming pole building. I really appreciate all the responses.
I thought I should let everyone who is interested know what my plan is for condensation control outside of putting something on the inside of the metal roof.
I am taking all the topsoil off and plan to fill it in with sand. That will probably be around 12 to 15 inches of sand. Then finish it off with some gravel except where the 20 x 40 piece of concrete will be. I was planning to have vented soffits and a ridge vent to get as much air through as possible. I'm wondering if I need anything up against that metal at all after reading some of the posts. We get most of our wind from the northwest and there will be at least a quarter mile of open space in that direction. I would guess I will have great ventilation, which is said to be important, and I would hope the sand and gravel will keep the moisture to a minimum at the floor level. The ground will slope away on all sides when I am done. Any thoughts?
