Thanks hcompton. Hate to beat a dead horse, but just want to make sure I'm clear before I make a mess. So cut the boards to size to fit between the studs and than I can wall the shed in with OSB paneling? I'm only asking because I understood that if I push the insulation board (shiny side) all the way up against the exterior wall(touching), that will trap condensation and cause the wood to stay damp and rot. Hate to ask so many question, but I don't want to do it wrong and cause more problems than I already have. Thanks for all the help.

Some facts here.

Foil covered rigid foam board on the interior of a space requires the foil to face inside the space and on top of the studs not between them. Tape all foam board with seam tape or aluminum foil tape, on top of rigid foam goes the vapor barrier then the interior face board like OSB or drywall.

The only time the foil faces out is on exterior installations on top of the studs such as when using stucco etc. The vapor barrier is always on the inside under the interior finish and needs to be sealed.

If you were going to cut the board up to fit between the studs you would still face it inwards and place it close to the interior finish wall not push it deep into the cavity towards the exterior wall with the foil out.

This is code nearly everwhere and how its done here in Canada.

Thanks for the response 4 Jaw Chuck. I've received a lot of useful information. Almost too much for me to process.

It was a lot simpler insulating, heating and cooling my shop because it was built with tyvek wrap and soffit vents. All I did was slapped a few batts between the studs and in the attic and I was done. I'm surprised at how this little 10x12 shed has kicked my butt. Lol.
