" I think what I am going to do is put a layer of plastic on the inside, of the outside wall, place R13 with kraft paper (as described before by another member on my thread), and then drywall over that. For the ceiling, I will clean out the wood/crap from above, then blow cellulose over it. Sound like a plan?"----------------------
No plastic on the sheathing, when house wrap/builders paper is probably on the exterior side already. Asking for mold. Asphalt faced kraft paper batt is fine, poly may work also, IMHO- not poly.
Use new "light-weight 1/2" drywall on ceiling (OR 5/8"), not regular 1/2" if fire-code permits to carry cellulose for the 24"oc.

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

I'm curious why you are insulating a detached, unheated garage?

I'd be more curious about what the other houses in your neighborhood have for a garage. Do the ones that are selling have finished garages? If you are a flipper then you only care about putting minimal amount of money in to get maximum amount of money out. Of course you want to leave something that you are proud of but this isn't your house, its an investment.
