Covering insulation

I recently purchased a 30-yr old homw with an attached unheated single car garage that im converting to a woodworking shop. Im in the process of insulating the attic area above the garage and the 2 walls that are not attached to the house.

my question is, if im using paper-faced fiberglass insulation in the walls, do I need to then cover these walls with drywall/panelling or can i just leave the studs & faced insulation exposed?

thanks

Yes you can let just the paper side show if you want Id puy a 6 mil poly over it there to help seal it. You could just put up drywall and not tape it. lots of time they put up peg board over it so you can hang stuff there.

Thanks Ed! I was hoping that'd be the case. I was planning on the pegboard but adding the 6mil poly over it sounds like a smart plan!
