I just recently moved out to the country and have purchased a home with an amazing pole barn. Inside, the wife wanted some space she could work in year round, so I built a 12' x 16' structure which I'm planning on insulating. We are planning on cooling this space in the summer and heating it in the winter. The exterior walls are 2x6 construction, on side to provide wind sheer strength, with the metal screwed to them. Originally was going to put in fiberglass insulation, but have read this could be like building a Hilton Garden Inn for all the field mic.
Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on the best way to insulate the exterior walls? I realize the ceiling will need insulation as well. The ceiling was constructed with 2x8 on 16" centers so we could store seasonal items (Christmas decorations, etc) up top. Thanks.
