now that i know where you live i would suggest you insulate at least the ceiling…but if you can i would do it all while your doing it…i live in mid state Alabama and have had my shop for 15 years now…with no insulation, and boy its been a fight to get it warm on cold days..and it took lots of wood to keep it that way, well i just got done insulating the ceiling last week with my son…and its made all the difference in the world…i run a wood stove and it will now run me out if i run it to hot…if you want to heat for cheap…i would have a small wood stove…but there are many options for heat…but i suggest it because you can get your own wood and not have money going out the door for your heat…good luck with your decision to move..tom suggested white…i agree…being in a man cave doesn’t mean it has to be dark and dingy…bright and good lighting…ive got a total of 12 4 tube florescent lights in mine and over with my bench i have more lighting to really light things up…good luck..
