If at some point you can find some sky lights to put in, that is really nice!

Very nice looking shop! You said you were going to heat it. Did you put the bubble insulation under the roof tin or are you going to deal with the condensation some other way? I can't tell from the pics.

It has a ceiling, and will have insulation blown into the attic in the next while. There are vents on the gables to allow air flow to eliminate condensation in the attic.

Ok. You might want to look into putting something on the bottom of the roof tin. When you get a frost and then the sun comes out, it will sweat like crazy. I have a couple of open sided hay barns with no insulation under the tin and they sweat a lot. The last 2 barns I built I insulated the underside of the roof tin and no sweating at all. I'd sure hate to see your cellulose get all wet and compacted. Just my observations on my buildings.

2 comments Silver, don't move in until you have a floor and put pex hose in the floor in case you ever want to heat that way. Did both and am thankful for both. We heat with an outdoor boiler for shop, house and bunkhouse. -35 outside and +15 or 20 inside (celcius) is kinda nice.

Who gets to stay outside and stoke the boiler? But good way of doing it.

Most of the outdoor "boilers" only need to be stoked 2 or 3 times a day. They are very popular here in Virginia and are the answer to the whole problem of getting insurance companies to accept "wood heat". This way the wood isn't inside the house burning so fire risk is way down. They can be both hot water heat (baseboard on in floor) or they can be converted inside to fit a hot air system. Plus the lack of mess in the house with wood, debris, smoke, dust, etc. However, it does take away from the actual warmth of "backing your butt up to a nice warm stove to get warmed up" or cooking on a wood stove.
There are also the kind that burn waste oil; and I am assuming that they would burn regular fuel oil as well. One of the dairies I test for has it in his shop floor and there is nothing as nice as walking in there. Also had a dairy that had it in their parlor floor and the milking parlor was always comfortable. They no longer milk but it was one of my favourite farms to test in the winter.

I've been heating with a boiler for about 12 years now. I only have it hooked up to my house which is around 2800 sq ft finished including the walkout basement. I can get away with only filling it once a day, even during the coldest stretches. I would have hooked up my pole barn but its on the other side of the house from the boiler and at $11/ft for the underground insulated pipe I don't have any plans to heat it with the boiler.

By the way Silver, we need more pictures!

Not much been happening since the builder left, except rain. I'm trying to get the floor prepped for cement. Door guy should be here in the next while to install the overhead, and someone will be along to blow the insulation into the attic.
I've got a young fella tentatively lined up to do the wiring in about a week.
