Vapor barrier for pole barn insulation


I live in ohio and have a metal pole barn. I was wondering should I put a vapor barrier over the stringers and against the metal. Then I'm going to use cellulose to spray for insulation then put ply wood up. Or should I put the cellulose insulation in the vapor barrier then the ply wood walls. Not sure what to do I have a wood stove in the barn, it's not going to be warm in there all the time maybe twice a week when I want to go out there and work. Thanks in advance for your help

Not a fan of cellulose in sealed attic/hot roof designs.

How large is the space/roof?

The barn is 30x40 I am just trying to figure out ideas on how to insulate the barn semi inexpensive without having to use the spray foam insulation. I got a quote for the spray foam and to do the whole barn was going to be around $5-6,000.

Problem is making sure no air gets to the metal roofing or supporting frame for conduction. Notice "thermal breaks" mentioned and "air-tight"......
