I wonder if you could cut some sheet Styrofoam insulation to fit in between the joists before putting whatever sheathing on the ceiling? If you go your 1/2 foam route make sure you test the paint that you plan to use first. Some Paints can Quickly dissolve some foams. I think 1/2 foam might tend to sag with the 24" center? Another questionable concern many foams are not intended for living area with out being covered by drywall due to solvent emissions. But this is not really a living area? Does he plan on ac or heat (any insulation R value would be well spent now.
I am assuming the electrical is routed for lighting and a beer cooler
Sagging is something thats worried me... maybe run the wood strapping across the joists at closer intervals? I've seen this blue foam board (sorry, my knowledge of foam is limited to spray-in-place types) I haven't tried paint on it yet. I'm also worried if I put drywall on the ceiling, it would be too heavy... 100 pounds or so a sheet... on 2x4 low slope ceiling.
Wants to use a window unit (framed through the wall).
There was some "rigged" wiring out to it when I started.. buried 12/2 romex out the bottom of the house panel through a un-bushing-ed knockout (whoever did it used caulk) open splices all over... I buried three 3/4 conduits out there, 1 for a 40amp subpanel, and two for extras (it's cheap to add extra pipe now while the trench is open!!!! Oh, and all new wiring inside.
