what is your plan for this space?
it seems kinda wasteful to put double walls in this space.. if your trying to get a higher insulation value there is easier and cheaper ways.

You will want to get a building permit for this garage conversion to keep everyone safe. The room will need to meet minimum safety fire and building requirements; egress window, smoke alarm, heating, lighting, natural light (window), separation from furnace or HVAC, egress path, etc. Get a permit for your H.O. Insurance carrier in case of future claim and hassle-free when selling with the paper trail.
