Day 4 - The remaining roof panels are installed and the crew begins work on installing the side wall panels. The entrance doors as well as a few of the windows are framed in.

Historically, these buildings were called pole barns because builders used poles — similar to telephone poles — to support the rafters making up the roof of the building. Eventually builders began constructing with square columns which, compared to round poles, were easier to work with. Now builders use laminated columns, which are much stronger and allow post-frame structures to be utilized for many purposes. The term “pole barn” also originates from when buildings were not as technically and deliberately engineered. “Post-frame” is more correct, as it more accurately reflects the engineering and quality of the structure built.

I am curious as to what was used for a condensation control under the roof steel? I could not tell from the videos.
Sadly this is an area very few post frame building contractors (or post frame kit package providers) discuss. It makes for a lot of sad new post frame building owners. At this point, your best solution is probably going to be to use closed cell spray foam on the underside of the roof steel. http://www.hansenpolebuildings.com/2016/07/advantages-spray-foam-over-batt-insulation/
Looking back that is one thing that we did not account for in our design and construction process. I have been working on a couple ideas to help with the reduction of moisture in the building but realize that I wish I would have thought of this sooner. Any suggestions or products that you would recommend +Mike The Pole Barn Guru?
