That should keep moisture from condensing and dripping all over everything. Looking good!

One idea is to use a humidistat to control the heat.  Whenever the humidity is over about 40% RH, then the humidistat kicks on, turning on the heat.  Heating air lowers the RH.

Note that painting the roof a dark color will heat the roof and thereby minimize condensation and also provide some heat into the building to help lower the RH.  The average outside RH is around 65%, so a building needs to be about 20 F warmer than the morning's low temperature to achieve 8% EMC.  A small fan or two helps stir the air so conditions are uniform.  Otherwise, hot air rises and so the roof will have a lower RH than the floor.  In all cases, we do not want any source of moisture- wet lumber, roof leaks, soil moisture, open doors for very long, especially between 10PM and 10AM when outside RH is high.

The insulation is covered both sides with a black cover like tar paper I thought about painting it white so it would reflect light better are you saying it being black will help reduce condensation or the roof metal black?

Looks nice.  God job.  On our slab rack I hung some yellow safety chain from the frame to keep the slabs from accidentally falling out and conking a customer or me on the head.  Much like the chain that holds welding cylinders in a welding cart.  The chain has some slack so the slabs can easily pulled out a little to see them, but it keeps them from falling out.

Joey, where did you get those pipes bolted to the wood to hold your slabs? I was thinking about building something like that but I like your deal better than what I was thinking about.

Joey,

That is mighty fine, makes me green with envy. That is one of the nicest slab displays that I have ever seen.  Man, you are rockin'  8) 8).
