Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

If you didn't have the time or money to do it right in the first place, when will you get the time and money to fix it?

EG  If the air temp is 66 F and the rel. humidity 32% the dew point is about 35 F according to the first calc. So moisture from the air will condense on a surface that is at 35 F.... cold wall, window, roof, whatever.
