+1 on drywalled garage for my homes, one is attached, the other not.

The slatwall looks appealing. I did not know about that, but will look into that when I re-organize my garages, which may be the next projects.

So many things to do, I don't know how people could ask ER's "What ya do all day?". Between travel, hobbies, home projects, I do not have enough time (nor energy!).

Our garage is detached. I know in some jurisdictions that the common wall between an attached garage and a house must be sheetrock or some other fire barrier.

I have a big 26x48 detached shop garage. I went with OSB on the walls. Mine is a working garage, and I like that I can hang stuff anywhere, not just on studs. I put drywall on ceiling. I did not put any floor coating since I would just tear it up with jackstands and metal.

X2 to go look on garagejournal. I hang out there and learned a lot of tricks I used on my shop.

I just mounted the OSB smooth side out and painted the OSB with 2 coats of Kilz oil based white. looks nice to me, and reflects light well. I caulked the seams and also around the elec boxes so it is as air tight as reasonable. My walls are same as you have 2x6 on 16 inch centers. I just used regular fiberglass batt insulation R-19 in the walls and R-38 ceiling. Never gets below freezing even when it is single digits and barely over freezing in daytime. I have a heater when I am going to be working out there.

After Monday & Tuesday even the calendar says, W-T-F...
