Once it's well insulated it should be a lot easier to heat!

Looks very nice so far.

Good insulation is worth it's weight in gold. It'll save you about that much as well.

IMO Blow in is the best in the ceiling gets in all the crannies. That is if you can stand the taste of boric acid. dusty mess. Defiantly a fall job.

Little update , I paid a guy to blow in the ceiling for my house and had him finish the garage walls and blow in the ceiling in the shop. It averages 10-15 degrees cooler in the shop with the doors closed and it takes almost nothing to Heat got the lower sheetrock on and yesterday  finally dug the trench and ran power to the shed out beside the shop.. Been trying to get to that for 6 years now..lol
