So I now have a detached garage workshop with metal siding and 24" 2x4 frame. I plan to install Roxul Comfort Batt (R14) on the walls and then put up Pactive house wrap as my vapor barrier and then dry wall over it all. The roof has 2x6 and will get R30 Comfort Batt (5-1/2") vapor barrier and drywall. I plan to seal the edges with foam.

Is there any issues with my setup? I am in FL and I am worried about condensate with the vapor barrier.

House wrap is not a vapor barrier. Need 6 mil. plastic.
Air seal with expanding foam any place plumbing or wiring goes through the top or bottom plates.
Also going to need soffits and a ridge vent to vent the attic heat.
