With the usage of the following materials interiors of the pole barn houses can be transformed.

Even though plywood absorbs moisture, it dries out fast and regains its original shape. There is greater resistance to moisture damage at the panel edges. Using plywood for interiors has its benefits such as there are various finishes available, also the surface can be painted. In case of damage, it can be replaced easily. With benefits, it also comes with some drawbacks as these are not environmentally friendly and they are expensive.      

2. OSB (Oriented State Board)

OSB is made of small wooden pieces and which are available in large sizes too. Also, it is a mix of both hardwood and softwood. OSB is a rough-textured building material because it lacks a top veneer. Paint or stain absorption is more difficult due to this feature. OSB is typically used as an underlayment as a result.

Plywood is less flexible during installation than OSB, which may be helpful based on the spacing between columns. But after absorbing water, OSB swells and won’t revert to its original form.

3. Drywall
