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