is a 4 meter grid reasonable with metal roof
4 meters like norton said is pretty standard.
I built a house 3 years back on a 5 meter grid and metal roof no problem. The locals will know where to add some meat to the concrete beams and metal roof, if necessary.
You can also do a 9X9 like you say and just split the difference. No problem.
