Your decision for your project...but I will NEVER build another metal building without insulating the underside of the roof. That insulation might be the thin fiberglass batt covered by plastic or it might be OSB sheathing covered with tarpaper. But where I am, if you do nothing to insulate the metal roof from the interior, you will sometimes get condensation that RAINS inside the building. The moisture is in the air. It even rains sometimes in a fully open hay shed.
Maybe your conditions are different, but I would advise insulating beneath the roof metal. It doesn"t cost that much, and although it is a little bit of hassle to install, now is the time to do it. Then you will not wish you had insulated sometime later and be thinking about removing the tin to RETROFIT the insulation. Good luck!
And a question I have for one of the posters: where do you get black sheet metal? I have never seen any for sale or on any buildings around here. We usually pick white or galvanized for roofs to try to reflect some solar heat gain. I bet it would get very hot under a black roof.
