Just reviewing some of your pics, what is your plan for ceiling insulation, Based on what I see your best option will be the spray foam.

I completed a 40 x 80 addition onto my existing shop a couple years ago and was surprised how much it brightened things up when I installed white metal siding on the inside of the building.

I also bought 3/4" plywood cut into 2' x 8' pcs, painted them gray and used them as shadow boards to hang miscellaneous tools on the wall, Grinders, wrenches, sockets, clamps, extension chords, air lines etc.
I then use a black sharpy to outline everything so I know if something is missing.

I had planned on spray foam originally. Neighbor has his 40x60 completely covered with 2" on the walls and 4" on the ceilings. It is awesome working in there in the winters.

I purchased the 1" foam board off Craigslist and when I was purchasing I made sure to get plenty because I didn't want to try to find 16' long sheets around here. (It was 27' originally!) Well I have enough left over I plan to cut it to fit it between the purlins just because I have it and I can. Then I'll top it off with some foil foam board. Should cost about $700 to insulate the ceiling. About 5 times cheaper than the spray foam.

Since my shop had conventional wood trusses that are 4' on center, I just screwed white liner panels ( Metal Siding ) to the bottom which is great for being reflective, I was then able to blow loose insulation on top of it to give a R-38 rating. It cost $ 4,000.00 total to have a company insulate my 40' x 80' addition with 18' ceilings, the walls are only R-19.

Well, seeing as I am in contract to buy a place with no shop at all, I know I will be building one and decided to come back to this thread to see what was done compacting and grade wise. ...I'm scared... but I did get to get a good read in tonight! Any updates over winter? See spring is coming now!
