Moisture control / insulation for new cinder block shop with loft / den.
I’ve been reading through the forums for an answer to this question, but haven’t been successful in finding one. I’m building for the first time, so this is a learning curve for me.
I live in west Florida, and have a project in the works. I’m going to be building a 55ft x 38ft workshop, that will be 2/3 work space, and the remaining 1/3 will be a loft / den living space with a small kitchen, laundry area, and bathroom. So around 1400sq ft. I am planning on controlling climate with a 3 air handler mini split system.
I’m not concerned with the insulation of the workshop space, but need to plan for the insulation of the living area. My goal is to have the interior walls smooth concrete, and would like to avoid drywall completely.
What are my options for accomplishing this on the interior? I am not a huge fan of siding, but would be willing to stucco the exterior.
If I have missed a thread that will help me better understand moisture barriers and insulation, or there is something else I should be reading, please point this newb in that direction.
I appreciate the help
