Question Insulating garage

Greetings....Live in NH, building a 24X30 garage/workshop. Workshop will not be seperated from the rest of garage. I am having it built, but want to do insulation myself, post construction. What would be a good insulation to use? It will be 2X6 construction. Might put some kind of heat in there too, for those cold days. I know I can use fiberglass R19, but I don't plan on finishing the walls, and I can't stand seeing the pink insulation. If I did decide to "finish" the walls, what could I use, besides sheet-rock, that would be fairly inexpensive? Thanks in advance!

7/16 OSB (waferboard) would work great for this. Cost is higher than sheetrock ($8-$10 per sheet) but it is much more durable than rock and doesn't need to be "mudded". You would be looking at $500 in the material to do walls and ceiling. BTW, when you insulate you should see the paper, not the pink insulation. Good luck.

If you did not want to look at the pink stuff, you could get faced insulation. Use the OSB I did. I love it. Good Luck
