Shop insulation.

John,
I had a pole barn built at my cabin this past summer. I was considering walling off part of it and heating it so I can work on a sled or quad in comfort, this time of year.
As I've starting filling it with my "toys" I'm starting to re-evaluate how I'd wall it off and now I'm considering just heating the entire 24x30 space with a woodburner. This being said.
How well did you like the spray on insulation you used on your walls, and how did it compare cost wise with regular R-13 roll in insulation?
Did you see any benefits, or drawbacks? Do you feel it's doing the job you expected?
Any input would be appreciated.
Which journal had the pics in it, if I might ask?
Thanks,
Alan

I really like the spray foam insulation I used. Although it is behind walls and I cannot see it, I am not going through that much more wood to heat that space and it was pretty easy to do. It was about 3 times more expensive, but I have an R42 in the walls vs and R19, so there will be a payoff in the long run.

Not sure which journal had the pics, but I would check June of 2008.
