I'm no builder (by profession either), but if you live in any form of a box without adequate ventilation, you will get condensation. Next time that you're out in the cold and you can see your own breath, this is what you get in your living box. It just don't go away without a fresh air supply or perhaps, extreme sauna type dry heat.
I have NO idea how much or how little water vapour the wood burning stove churns out. I am aware of how much calor gas heaters throw out insofar as we had to use them to heat our homes in Northern Ireland (no natural gas back then), or pay stupid money in electricity for old fashioned storage heaters full of bricks. The water vapour and condensation would stream down the walls and have to be sponged otherwise mould would form.
Even if you sleep outside in a tent at this time of year, the inside of the roof will have some condensation just from the fact that you are breathing and exhaling air.
