    JF, such a personal topic. I live near to the general area you are talking about. I have done much research,tire kicking and inspection. there was one of the KENTUCKY STEEL buildings put up by the road on the way home. Which gave me the opertunity to see it up close and personal. I was not impressed at all. we all want a compfortable enviroment to work and play in. I am in the process of building a shop. I am going to use 2x6 walls
    setting on a poured slab.
    sheathed inside and out with "Barn Metal".
    The best book on the subject I have found is
    "building the multi-use barn" I can find the
    ISBN If anyone is interested.
    nothing looks as good as a block building painted inside and out. but we are in the north and block buildings are expensive and expensive to heat.
    Just my opinion.
    Happy Hunting

      I assumed you were talking about the typical use for sprayed on insualtion, which is on the walls and ceilings of Quanset hut type metal buildings.

      If in the attic of course it doesn't matter, but we're mostly talking metal buildings in this thread which usually means no attic.

        Archie,
        I know about heating, it ain't cheap. Some people in the area have gas wells on their land, so they heat cheap, but I probably won't be so lucky.
        I found a 15 x 20 chicken house in the area, modern construction and was heat with 2 wall type electric heaters, it was well insulated and the chicken moved out 15 years ago. I am not going to live there, but it told me a lot about what is needed to be done.

        Thanks,

        Jerry

            I just want it to stay at workable temperature, just get the machines started and let them warm up.

            I too, live in a house, the shop should be else where, in my case in the garage.

              I live in the house, but the shop is my refuge... no silly sitcoms, no giggly friends..

              Just me and the pup and my greasy machines..
