Paneling or pegboard for shed

Hello I am glad to have joined the site.

I purchased a house with a nice shed out back for storing tools and yard equipment. It is equipped with power but no hvac. The previous owner put insulation between the studs but didn’t put any paneling up.

I was thinking about the simple thin brown paneling I saw at Lowe’s or pegboard. Preference?

What nails do I use?

I'd probably put paneling on the bottom half and peg board above it. It never hurts to have means to hang stuff. They sell paneling nails - a small nail that has more of a head than a finish nail does. Or you could use a pneumatic staple gun.

Welcome to the forums.

Not sure why it was insulated. Insulation isn't terribly effective or needed in a building like that.

My shed is not insulated. I have one of the short walls of my shed done in 1/4" pegboard.
It's great for hanging up small garden tools, hoses and misc stuff.

If you just want to close the walls in..... any paneling will work for that application.

I'd put up 7/16" osb. It will be sturdy enough that you can nail up stuff anywhere. If you still want pegboard you would mount it on 1x2 furring.

Thanks so much for the advice. I inherited these nail guns when my father passed. I've never used them. Can yall tell me if any of these three would be helpful? If not, please let me know what gun would work well for this. Link to gun photos:

Here are two pics of the shed interior https://photos.app.goo.gl/oqNwujBNPu9LTohz8

And I have no idea why insulation was put up before I purchased the place.

Any of them will work although the 16 gauge has a slightly bigger head and might hold a little better. I prefer staples as they have more holding power - harder for them to blow thru the thin panels.

Helpful for what? They each have a different purpose.

If you are putting up paneling, you might use the crown stapler... But paneling is usually put up with colored (matching) panel nails.

If you are putting up 1/4" OSB you might use the crown stapler but if it's 1/2" osb that might be a little thick for it unless the staples are 1 1/2".

The brad nailer and finish nailer are mainly just for trim. (Casing and baseboard, etc)
