Happy Days!! I'm about to get my first real shop . . . a 30' X 40', with 12' ceilings.
And I have two questions: first, there is already metal corrugated siding on the building, but no interior finish. And, I'm wondering how to seal the eaves, but still have ventilation into the attic through the soffitt vents. The corrugations on the siding would allow bats, bugs, etc. to crawl straight up into the attic area if I don't put some kind of blocking between the trusses, above the top plates. And, I don't want the blown insulation I am going to put above the ceiling to fill my soffits. What kind of blocking works best for this? And second, I'm going to install a corrugated metal ceiling right away, and blow insurlation above it. Should I tack up a vapor barrier to the bottom chords of the trusses before I put up the metal? Thanks, in advance, to anyone who responds. Redleg Shovel.
