Try a small fan, and two to four incadescent 75 watt bulbs, run the fan on a timer leave the bulbs on all the time. See how this works after a week. If the problem gets better improve this design as it is less costly and you wrote you did not use the building for much else. If it gets worse consider drying this building in and putting a vapor barrier as others mentioned under the floor. I keep the florescent lights on in my shop all winter to help maintain a constant 50F or better temp in the shop when I am not in it running the heater. The incadescent lights put off more heat and are easier to build a temp test unit as you can use an extention cord for a few days to see how it works. The fan can be a cheap box fan.
