pole building insulation question


I purchased manufactured beams made out of wood from a local building supply store. They were cheaper than just about every thing else and are rated for a 2nd floor. All I plan to do is put boxes up there etc.

these give me plenty to attach drywall with. I can also insulate normally.

pole building insulation question


Looks like your roof is taller than mine. I'm not doing a ceiling like yours with beams. My roof trusses are about 4 - 5 feet apart. Any suggestions on how to put a ceiling in there? I'm trying to upload a pic for reference. I would like to just put up ceiling tiles. Can you just roll insulation on top of the ceiling tiles?

I would let the pros chime in. If it were me with my limited knowledge I would go in with 2x6's between the trusses on 16-24" centers. Then use that for your sheetrock / ceiling track to screw to and roll the insulation on top of it. There should not be enough weight in the insulation to make the tiles have an issue. Then again you could blow it in to your liking.

Any danger of the 2x6s causing the trusses to lose structural integrity? Could they hold all the 2x6s and drywall and insulation without putting too much stress on the tresses. Don't want the roof to fall in on my man cave!

Any structural engineers out there have any thoughts?
