Is the first step to rip out all roof and side meal?

Should I remove the ceiling and walls metal? It was 90f at its lowest on a summer day with two air conditioning window units.


first step to remove?
Then spray foam
Then wood walls and ceiling?

There are threads on this topic.. and with each thread a different opinion.lol
Basically, if you want more R value you need better insulation. How you do that is your choice.

If you're doing it correctly you will want to insulate the floor and walls also.

Well I already have a new pergo floor so I guess that is out.
Yes I want to do this correct, Its very HOT where I am.



Im doing only the back 1/3 like this and in pine. So I guess rip the sheet metal all out?



Ill try a few threads but so far every photo is all the metal gone.
Thrown away? Replaced with wood?


Spray foam cant be just jammed in a light hole and forced up there>?

Two part spray foam can't be jammed up in there. Take the ceiling panels and wall panels out. What you do with them is up to you. Some people skin windows with them, some scrap them.

Has anyone, that has left the sheet metal on the ceiling, had an issue with condensation when it’s freezing outside?

leaving the metal was bake you out in a hot climate and freeze you out in a cold one. even if you pull the panels down and spray and put them back up...you have metal touching metal from the inside to the outside.
