Are you going to lag in between the vertical framework? Perhaps face with some foil backed plasterboard to help the temperatures?

Our buildings are well insulated in Canada....the walls will have R20 insulation...ceiling...R40+ Exterior of the building is wrapped with Tyvek...windows at least double glazed,
Heating is provided with a natural gas forced air furnace,,,,,,,.they are pretty toasty in winter and cool in summer.

Weather has been great so far....got the big west wall all framed and raised into position.....one more to go.
Used the old tried and proven gin pole method to erect the wall.

Weather has been really kind to me....warm and sunny (yesterday was 17C)
All ready for the trusses....they should be here in about a week. Getting the roof on will be a slower task if we get some snow.

Looking really good, something really nice about building in wood... interested to see if there is any mid-support for the trusses, looks quite a span...
