Help with framing for insualtion


Let me start by saying Im new to forum and Im not very experienced in carpentry. I recently decided i would insulate my 16x22 work shop. The rafters have me wondering what im going to do.. What i would like to do is add 2x6's on 24" centers about a foot about the top plate to increase my ceiling height and then insulate and hang osb. Is this going to be structurally sound with the weight of the osb. as of right now i only have a few rafter ties and and they sit on the plate. the garage is old but seems pretty square and sound.
I will add in hurricane ties to the rafters also. Please let me know what your thoughts are and if im heading in right direction. here are some pictures..dont mind the mess i have been moving everything off the walls to insulate.

You should search for lumber span chart. Look for lumber size that will span 16' deadload. Use them as rafter ties and a higher ceiling and insulate as an attic. Frame the eave side for r-30 insulation and vent space baffle and vent by adding vents that goes between the roofing. I don't think you have a soffit, so that is not a vent option here.
