Waterproofing a garage


So, I have a spare garage I'd like to turn into a plant nursery, and, since it's made of wood, I thought I'd like to take steps to waterproof it. Also mold proof, since part of the roof has a moldy patch already, I asked a question about this in the roofing section if anyone cares to look at that also. Anyway, I was thinking I'd rent a paint sprayer from Home Depot and saturate the interior of the garage with a few coats of waterproof and/or moldproof paint, hopefully they proof against both, and then, I thought I'd layer the inside with clear plastic sheeting, taped on with waterproof tape. Is this a good approach to this problem, or does anyone have a better idea, considering I'm on a fairly limited budget?

Thanks,

Jim
