What I did was to nail 2x2's vertically to the girts, spaced 2 feet on center. (Actually I ripped 2x4s, because the quality of 2x2s tends to be pretty bad.) I then installed 2 foot wide x 3-1/2 thick fiberglass insulation between the 2x2s. The insulation was then covered with 7/16" OSB. This worked out pretty well. The insulation was exactly the right width and slightly too thick. I've also heard of nailing 2x2s horizontally along the girts and installing the insulation horizontally.

I don't quite under stand what you have, but this is what I do.

Side walls.

I put 2x4 horizontal on 24" centers and flush with the inside of the posts, with the first one fastened to the floor.

I use 22-1/2 x 6" fiber glass insulation fastened to the horizontal 2x4's. I then use 7/16" OSB for wall board.

For the ceiling.

The roof boards are 2x4's on edge on 18" centers with steel roofing fastened to them.
So I use 3-1/2 x22-1/2" fiber glass insulation, and cut it to length and temporarily held up with string stapled to the bottom of the 2x4's. Then I use 1" thick foil faced Thermex. Nailed to the bottom of the roof boards with washed nails. And I seal the joints with aluminum foil tape.

I did one building with bead board that had an aluminum faced cereal box type cardboard, I didn't care for that bead board and will not use it again. It was ordered and made in Adrian MI.

This has worked very well for me.
