No reason not to use it. Inside humidity could become a problem but vents will fix that.

thanks,
Humidity is probably the biggest problem in this country I am planning on some type of fans but I haven't run up on any to scrounge just yet.

Yes, I guess that's what I mean. It's been called tin around here as long as I can remember

Well, I can think of several disadvantages, such as the acoustic properties but still, I think you are talking
about saving several hundred or maybe a couple of thousand dollars? I couldn't argue with that.
One of the real deficiencies to my little shop is the lack of inside sheeting; I have nothing but the purlins
and the white plastic cover of the insulation. I miss not being able to drive a nail into the wall to hang stuff on.

Cutter, you still could. Just screw some plywood to your purlins inside. You would have to add one at the floor, but that is easily done. 5/8 or 3/4 ply on the inside should hold up most things you may want to hang. The purlins are just 16 gauge. Most decent self tapping screws can handle that easily. We used to hang sheetrock on them on several industrial buildings like that.

Just a thought.

Exclamation Nice building

gagiii , I was reading one of your earlier posts about piping the air system in your shop ,here is a product I am going to use when I get my new shop built . No fighting with pipe wrenchs and no rust in the system . cut it with a tubing cutter and assemble it by hand and if you want to add or remove something (quick connector ,etc. ) you can take it apart easily . :evil: Dan www.garage-pak.com/
