Help with condensation

I built a 800 sf shed this summer and now that its getting cold the walls, ceilings and roofing panels are dripping and sweating like crazy. So i decided to insulate the walls first using r-13 and OSB from the inside.

But the Back side of the fiberglass that faces the outside is still getting wet. is this going to be okay? or will it mold? i really don't know what else to do.

im in South GA.

Help with condensation

Until you add a ceiling and some insulation your going to be getting rising moisture from the slab and the area below.
