Insullating an exhisting metal roof

My family and I have a hunting cabin (about 100yrs old)and want to find a practical approact to insulating the roof so we can utilize the attic space as the cabin is relatively small. I have read in these forums about spray on insulation. Is this a reasonable approach and will it provide adequate moisture barrier and R-value for the cabin. Our roof pitch is pretty standard. We just re-galvanized the roof last year and don;t have a lot of $ to invest to re-roof the cabin. Any thoughts, ideas etc would be appreciated. FYI - the cabin is heated by a fuel-oil heater and a traditional fireplace. We heat the cabin when we arrive etc so tems can have pretty dramatic swings between weekday and weekends. Not sure if this is of any value when considering the best method of insullating Thanks again for any advice, direction - Clark Family

The two-part urethane spray-on foam insulations on the market are very good though not cheap. Talk to a local insulation contractor to get more info.
